Today we can get 20mbs from Sonic and "ATT".
When will we get gigabit? We are the three blocks that has underground wiring(owned by ATT).
My guess is never and that is pretty depressing.
Former Pacific Bell employee - maybe my children's children will get gigabit...
If you've got underground-served utilities, I'm afraid you're out of luck. SF does not currently allow new utility construction using trenchless methods, so it's not practical for any new entity to place conduit in the ground. Perhaps AT&T or Comcast might upgrade their services to fiber someday, or you might get some future wireless product that'd be faster, but Sonic doesn't have a way that we could reach you with fiber.
