MetroNet Fiber Build-Out Project

MetroNet Fiber Build-Out Project

This project is managed by MetroNet. Visit their website for more information.


A new city-wide fiber build-out project will establish high-speed broadband access — via fiber — to homes across Victoria, Minnesota.
While the project will provide additional choices and capabilities for broadband internet connectivity within the community, there are anticipated impacts to right-of-way areas during construction of the build-out project. 

Project Overview 

In 2022, Carver County partnered with MetroNet to create access to high-speed broadband internet via fiber to every residence and business throughout Carver County. The project, titled Connect Up Carver, includes townships and cities within the county, including the City of Victoria. 

Starting summer 2024, MetroNet will begin construction of its fiber-optic network throughout the city right-of-way (ROW) and utility easements. They will phase out the project through 2024 into 2025.  

Once construction nears a specific area and neighborhood, residents will see a series of messages before construction activity begins, including a letter, postcard, and yard marker. Next, crews will identify and mark underground utilities with temporary landscape-safe paint. Construction will be temporary, and MetroNet will do its best to minimize the impact to property.  

MetroNet has a website dedicated to addressing any questions or concerns residents may have about construction. Visit https://metronet.com/construction and click on the “Ask a Question” tab to submit your question or concern. Residents can also call (877) 386-3876. Metronet promises to answer all inquiries and address any concerns within 24 hours (one business day Monday-Friday) and to repair any damage occurring during construction of their network. 

Once available, residents can subscribe for high-speed internet through MetroNet by contacting MetroNet through their connection webpage: https://www.metronet.com/mn/victoria
