Petaluma fiber

Over the past few weeks, Sonic had been laying new fiber along Maria Dr and Rainier Ave. Today they crossed Sonoma Mountain Pkwy to Rainier Cir.

Is this fiber going to continue north towards the SRJC campus and Kenilworth neighborhood?

I have seen the same activity and the work has made it up rainier almost to Sonoma mountain parkway elementary. Is there a chance of fiber coming to this area?

I see fiber pulled to a pothole in front of every house down Crinella Dr. Would love to glimpse the roadmap to see how long we'll have to wait . . .

They were laying fiber a few weeks ago at the corner of Casa Grande and Ely Blvd. South. Excitedly asked one of the workers what the story was, and he acknowledged it was fiber for the high school. No clue if there are plans to extend into residential neighborhoods, but I'll be signing up the second it happens. I can't wait to be done with Comcast, but for now Sonic just can't give me the speed I need at home. (50mbps vs 250mpbs)

No, nothing we can share at this time.

I'm a longtime Sonic user. I've stuck with Sonic despite the slower speeds but I desperately want fiber. Any updates on when residential access will be available on the west side of Petaluma?

Does Petaluma have a dig once policy, or do developers just put in conduit for the two incumbents?

(It's a rhetorical question: Petaluma does not. Sorry!)

In cities where significant new development will occur in the coming decades, a dig once policy should be seriously considered. And for those cities which are at their growth boundaries where they expect mostly smaller housing projects and infill, policy tools like MDU access and new building wiring standards are more useful.

The City of Brentwood in the East Bay has been a great example of a community adopting a dig once standard, which required developers to include additional conduit. The result: nearly 12,000 homes and businesses in Brentwood now have access to Sonic gigabit fiber service. It's a great success story, but unfortunately we haven't seen it replicated elsewhere.
