Continue to support the provision of high speed internet services throughout Lexington.
Quality and dependable high speed internet is vital to top-tier businesses, small entrepreneurs, and private personal device users alike. As of late 2017, the Council voted to approve a 10-year franchise agreement to MetroNet, a company new to the Lexington market, to provide gigabit speed internet service. This would drastically increase speeds available to Lexington citizens and should help with retaining and attracting businesses. Construction began in early 2018 on the southeastern portion of Lexington, and will continue at no up-front cost to the City. Planning should continue to facilitate upgrades to Lexington’s internet infrastructure.
