Beginning as early as December 2021, MetroNet will begin construction on their 100% fiber optic network in the City of Norfolk.

MetroNet expects to begin in the area north of Norview Road and West of Sewells Point Road. Their total estimated build time for coverage throughout Norfolk is three to four years.

What can you expect?

Construction teams in and around neighborhoods completing both aerial and underground work. MetroNet team member uniforms and vehicles are clearly marked with the MetroNet logo, making them easy to identify.

What will they be doing?

MetroNet uses cutting-edge installation technology, while actively minimizing the impact on properties within the construction areas. In neighborhoods with utilities on overhead poles, MetroNet will use that existing infrastructure. In areas with underground utilities, MetroNet uses state-of-the-art horizontal underground drilling machines to bury the fiber cables. 

Where can I find out more?

MetroNet has a website dedicated to all things construction-related. Visit to access frequently asked questions, view construction areas, and to notify MetroNet of any potential property concerns, such as the location of an underground sprinkler system or invisible dog fence.
