    Since 1994 ... H I S T O R Y !

    MetroNet began as a small 3-4 board network in south-western
    Pennsylvania, USA in 1994. This startup included The Phantom
    BBS, The Titantic BBS, and Starfleet Multiline TBBS. FidoNet
    was a costly option back then, not only for the phone tolls,
    but also most hubs made you pay monthly for a feed. We wanted
    a fun Fido-Style nework of our own that would be loca, and
    best of all, be FREE.

    As the users and SysOps started to like what they saw, more
    and more systems joined the network. We quickly grew to
    around 63 boards through-out Pennslvania and a few western
    states. This was unheard f at the time unless it was
    FidoNet. Many networks tried to emulate MetroNet in the
    local area during the 1990s, but they all have come and gone.
    MetroNet has stood the test of time and is still here to
    prove it's worth.

    Slowly, but surely, 1997 came around and BBSes were shutting
    down. The network was shrinking. For the few boards that
    were left, the conversation was still good, but not like it
    once was. The network idled off and on for the next few
    years and was rebranded the new home network of The Renegade
    BBS Software in 2003 once the Renegade source code was passed
    down to McMillen. This was in hopes to re-jump start the
    network and bring in more and new conversations as well as
    Renegade BBS support that was lacking elsewhere.

    As of 2022, the network is once again growing. We are always
    looking for new nodes and hubs to carry on the network to
    others in the world.

    Re-additions of Legend of the Red Dragon and Barren Realms
    Elite Door games for InterBBS Play on MetroNet has also
    brought some new users into the fold.
