Any plans to bring fiber to Burlingame?;

An ATT tech told me that there is fiber along Occidental Avenue in Burlingame Park, not sure where else in town.

I received this email few days ago. Hopefully this is real and not the equivalent of Porsche announcing and electric car three years ago with nothing ion the road yet...

Got the same email a few days ago and i live in the lower pacific heights neighborhood of SF
My worry is this is an early early notice and we won't actually get fiber for many months to a year of roll-out

that said, the porsche taycan is supposedly landing next year with a production version reveal this September and sales starting near the end of the year

Still no fiber in Burlingame, and no viable EV other than Tesla for that matter

Got another lame marketing email from sonic, essentially saying nothing and yes still no fiber. Odd approach, they are not building excitement they are making fools of themselves. Just email when it's available already.

And Taycans still not out and BTW have no charging network, kind of the right analogy. Sonic fiber = taycan. Wait years and dribble out spam but no product available.

We get complaints when we do not provide status updates. Now, complaints when we do. Can’t win, it seems.

Easy to win Dane- just tell me roughly when, after being loyal to sonic for over a decade, I can shut my friends up who have dpi/google spyware accelerator Comcast that is 5X faster than sonic at same cost

Have you approved the emails we receive? They don’t set any expectation or provide concrete updates

We used to provide our internal projected network activation dates, but then had issues in a number of cities with local permitting that created substantial delays. We also had problems with contractors not meeting their time-frames, for a variety of reasons. The delays upset consumers who had been told by us that we'd be ready on a certain date, but which we couldn't now meet due to the permitting and construction delays.

Because so many components are not within our own control, it's really challenging to assure that any date would be right. So now we don't provide dates. We feel like it's better to not make a promise that we cannot keep. This is why the updates are limited to initially the stages of construction, then later the percentage of the region actually activated. The goal is to demonstrate progress and provide as much transparency as possible, without raising false expectations.
