San Francisco to Become a Gigabit City Thanks to Sonic.Net

  • FTTH
SANTA ROSA, CA - Independent service provider Sonic.net announced that it filed a permit application to build an FTTH network in San Francisco. The application covers only a pilot area of 2,000 homes in the city's Sunset District, but the company plans a five-year buildout that will reach most San Francisco premises.

Sonic.net's all-fiber network will offer full gigabit-speed Internet access and voice telephone service to customers in San Francisco. Construction will begin in 2012, pending permit approval. Sonic.net currently offers copper-based broadband and telephone services throughout the greater Bay Area.

“San Francisco is our fastest-growing market for copper-delivered Fusion Broadband+Phone service today, so we are very excited to bring our fiber optic upgrade process to the city,” says Dane Jasper, CEO and cofounder of Sonic.net. “There is a huge demand in San Francisco for higher bandwidth services, and fiber is the only long-term way to meet this demand.”

The Santa Rosa-based company currently offers fiber services in Sebastopol, Calif., where customers can buy 100 Mbps service for $39.95 monthly or 1 Gbps service for $69.95. The company was also selected to operate Google's beta-test gigabit network in Stanford faculty housing.
