Is Sonic planning on providing service on my part of MLK, or should I look for other options?


From all the prior responses it looks like eventually but it’s a long, slow process. I pre-ordered at the Berkeley-Oakland border when an announcement was first made but it took maybe a year and a half to actually happen. Since then they’ve made good progress south, but I wouldn’t hold your breath. I am a happy customer and totally disappointed I’ll have to give it up when I move soon.

Any status on Rockridge area? Closet major cross streets are Broadway Terrace and Belgrave Pl.

I am moving from SF next month and am SO sad I need to go back 10 years in ISP service.

Btw, I love love Sonic <3

When I moved to north oakland, i was able to get AT&T fiber a few months before Sonic rolled out, and sonic is (or at least was?) covering ETFs, so I was able to switch to sonic when they became available. if you can't get sonic i'd consider looking at AT&T as an alternative to comcast. because of fiber's competitive pressures, comcast has improved its bandwidth offerings, so while they still suck to do business with at least they're faster than they have been.

Seems like this is the place to get real information. We had fiber over on 14th Ave & East 31st St (that was a long grueling nightmare to get installed) but just moved to 19th St & Castro. I spoke to an ATT tech who said there might be fiber going in soon down the street.

Any information for the northwest area of downtown/uptown?

I think we're getting closer to being able to ditch AT&T.


I'm in the Temescal/Shafter neighborhood and now see this message on https://members.sonic.net/connections/s ... e/#/change

Woah! Lucky you!

10 gigabit fiber internet from Sonic is coming to your address!
