Also interested. I know you will say you are always expanding, but would appreciate if you can give any kind of time frame. Will it be next year, next decade, next centry or millennia?

I live in the Cambrian neighborhood of San Jose, but as someone antsy to get faster speeds than 47Mbps(while staying as far from companies like Compast as possible) I'm also curious about this.

Would totally sign up for sonic fiber. Please deploy in south San Jose.

I get great service from Comcast here. For a $50 intro price, I get 180 Mbps download speed (recently bumped up from 120 Mbps). Solid service and has only been down once in two years. However, I would switch to Sonic if they offered gigabit service for their support of net neutrality and customer service. I only wish they would offered static IPs.

I've been patiently waiting for Sonic to land fiber in the Cambrian area of San Jose. Having bonded DSL for many years and I keep looking into Comcast and ATT as I'm getting tired of paying so much for so little (25Mb/s down, 2Mb/s up with bonded DSL).

It would be really nice to know if we are even on Sonic's radar or not.

we have FTTN here in south San Jose (Almaden area) and we're paying a steep $65+ for less than 20Mbps down, and 1.8Mbps up.
Like you, we've been waiting very patiently for a higher speed offering but there hasn't been even a single update on this topic for > 3 years now.
I'm eagerly waiting for the oft-rumored T-Mobile 50Mbps, no caps, no hidden fees, $50/month plan to become a reality and after the Sprint merger approval, that is something we're very excited about.
It may be time to say Sayonara and 'nice knowing you' to Sonic very very soon.

RG1, I too have been hoping for the TMO $50/50Mbps plan but I think they are focusing on rural areas. There is another option, Sail Internet (https://www.sailinternet.com/). They use mmwave to deliver to your house. I ping'd a Tina who I saw responding to folks in Yelp asking "When can I get Sail?". She responded and had me meet with a Javier. They are looking for neighborhood champions to help them find tall buildings (preferably Multi Dwelling Units) to deliver Fiber to and then they can put transmitters on top and deliver to the surrounding neighborhood. I've found a few and given them the info and I'm hoping this will allow them to get Sail into my neighborhood. They claim 100-200Mbps down, 50-100Mbps up for $55/month.

PM me if you'd like the contact info.
