Got my Sonic installed, a very good process. Got the Eero Pro + Beacon too. Everything is working great and I'm now discovering the limits of internet servers rather than my internet connection. Hooray!

Strongly recommend Eero too, very reasonable pricing and excellent WiFi performance. Hope Sonic offers the new Eeros as an option soon, too

Good stuff, Dane. I was able to move my date up. Really appreciate the responsiveness and customer focus.

The Berkeley / Emeryville and North Oakland project is nearly complete, with two new FDAs activated in the last week, number 46 and 51B. Just one remaining before the project is wrapped up.


Any chance there will be information coming soon about further East Bay expansion?


Nothing to announce yet, but we are expanding all around the Bay Area. =)


I just purchased a home in Emeryville on 54th st. So painful to know you just lit up an area a block away! Our block is surrounded by fiber, but we're still stuck with Comcast (or ATT@5mb/s).

Any chance you have any information for future Emeryville expansion efforts now that a couple months have passed since this reply? If not detailed plans, even a general idea of whether you have an intention of covering all of Emeryville at some point would be great to know.

Today we've got most of the network active in the area, with the exception of three blocks of 55th St, and a block or so Lowell, plus one block of 63rd St. Those regions all waiting on some odd construction issues related to the PG&E poles. (And I think the 55th and Lowell sites are actually on the Oakland side of the line. 63rd is on the Emeryville side.)

Most of 54th St is active today, all East of San Pablo Ave, but that'd be Oakland. 54th in Emeryville has aerial utilities, but they appear to be isolated, so we may not be able to get these. I'm checking with engineering to see.
