I was wondering if we'd be seeing a September build update for West Oakland fiber installation anytime soon. Usually they've come in the early part of the month, and the August update suggested we'd start seeing residential connections "by the end of the summer" which of course is fast approaching. What's the word? (FWIW I'm over in Lower Bottoms, west of Peralta and a couple blocks north of 7th st.)
I know these things take time, and I'm happy to see the progress so far but it's been a while (and with Sonic hopefully on its way I've been sticking with my AT&T DSL but it's...less than ideal so I'm eager).
I spoke too soon - just got the September email this morning. Regrettably, it's now saying not to expect service until next spring. Seems as though it may make sense to change to something better from AT&T if possible for the interim, which I'd held off on since it seemed like this was coming sooner than it's ended up being. Looking forward to it eventually, anyway.
As a former sonic fiber customer and soon to be one again - I can definitely say that while it is frustrating waiting, it's 100% worth it in the end! I went through this in San Francisco before, and as with any large project like this, there's always unintended delays.
