LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa. & ALLENTOWN, Pa. - eMusicWire -- Allentown, Pennsylvania. — Ironton, a family-owned telephone company in the Lehigh Valley of Pennsylvania, announced today that it has formed Keystone Metrofiber, a new subsidiary aimed at enabling a new generation of wireless communication technology. Keystone Metrofiber will provide both Public and Private Wireless using the latest 4G-LTE Advanced and 5G technology throughout the Lehigh Valley.
