We are excited to announce the latest addition to the Metro Optic Executive Team - Thomas Rivington

As a seasoned Canadian telecom executive and entrepreneur, Tom will focus on developing massively scalable fiber solutions for Metro Optic through acquisitions and targeted network builds. In 2003, he co-founded Aernet Wireless, one of Atlantic Canada’s first residential fixed wireless internet providers. After the sale of Aernet in 2008, Tom co-founded F6 Networks to provide dark and lit fiber solutions to large enterprises, the government and hyperscalers.
