The Rochester City Council approved a five-year franchise agreement with MetroNet on February 4, 2019 that will allow the company to build a fiber optic cable system in Rochester. While the franchise from the city only covers cable television, the company also offers phone and broadband service.
MetroNet has 240 days from the time the franchise takes effect to begin building a network locally. As part of its agreement with the City of Rochester, MetroNet commits to covering 80 percent of dwelling units within five years.
