We are focused on the regions we have the most customers, so that keeps us working in SF for some time; nearly 30% of Sonic members live in SF.
But we will be continuing our push to bring fiber to everyone we can, of course prioritized based on density of current members as well as feasibility of construction. So, please spread the word about our mission, the more members Sonic has, the further we can bring gigabit fiber!
Hi Dane, I understand that. But could you please give us some overview for how the "bring fiber to everyone" project is going? Do you have an estimate for different areas? I'm also in Petaluma...do you think it's possible within the next 2 years? 5? 10? Or is it just not on your radar at all?
I've been promoting Sonic for years but I still don't know where the members live. This is the first I've heard any stats...that 30% are in SF. I thought most were in Sonoma County...
In general, we're making good overall progress. Today 10% of Sonic's residential customers are gigabit fiber connected, and that percentage is growing. We're building, splicing and installing new fiber just as fast as we can, across a growing region, and over the last 12 months, our reach has expanded over 10-fold from where we were a year ago.
Petaluma is on our radar, as are a number of other communities around the Bay Area where we have strong membership numbers. I can't project when, but I will say that we're working way, way faster every month. Uptake where we build fiber is critical in getting us further, as is overall membership, so I really appreciate your support as we pursue our mission to build a better internet access product!
