On July 31, 2018 the Village Board approved a non-exclusive Franchise Agreement with MetroNet Inc. for the provision of internet services. MetroNet expects to begin work in the Village as early as next week. Residents in the initial build areas will be receiving letters directly MetroNet.
The majority of the Village will be included in the service area. At this time, MetroNet doesn’t have a plan to expand its service area, however there is a possibility other areas will have access in the future. MetroNet intends to provide service to these areas if they can establish a customer base that justifies their capital investment for expansion.
Additional internet services provider options have been requested by residents and businesses for quite some time. The Village has reached out to various providers over the years requesting they consider Sugar Grove. We have been talking to MetroNet for about four years and are pleased that they will soon begin offering services. All residents will continue to have access to Mediacom. AT&T also is available within the village but is limited to certain areas. Other wireless dish and antenna options also are available.
