Any coordination between Comcast and Sonic for Oakland fiber installs?

We're on the north edge of downtown Oakland and our street is about to be trenched for fiber; we're current Sonic customers and, months ago, pre-ordered Sonic fiber that supposedly is "coming soon." I assumed Sonic would be hanging their fiber since the rest of our utilities are overhead, and the PG&E guys marking the utilities were pretty sure the trench installation was for xFinity fiber. Does anyone know if the City of Oakland coordinates the installs and there might be a prayer of a chance we'll also get Sonic at that point? Or is that just pipe dreams?? Thanks!

You can check the City of Oakland permit site to see if it's related. ... bName=Home

Around our area near Piedmont Ave, CableCom (Comcast contractor) has been doing a lot of work so it could very well be for that.

Thanks--I had checked our immediate block for permits (none) but hadn't thought to look at nearby blocks, which actually turned up a Verizon Wireless trenching permit to lay fiber on an adjacent block as part of their 5G rollout. So seems more likely that this is related to that work, and not for either Comcast or Sonic. Bummer.
