Stable and Efficient Internet & Phone Service with Metronet

The Association of Racing Commissioners International (ARCI), based in Lexington, KY, significantly enhanced their internet and voice services by switching to Metronet.

The seamless integration of internet and voice services through Metronet has provided a stable, efficient, and frustration-free environment for their critical activities.
