Has anyone been receiving monthly updates? I singed up for a pre-order back in May and have not received any email updates.

The folk wisdom is that you don't see monthly updates unless/until your neighborhood enters the "engineering" phase of fiber rollout (i.e. they actually start physically hanging fiber on poles).

I'd like to think that, if progress were being delayed by some local sociopolitical issue (such as the ILEC trying to strong-arm an exclusivity agreement with the city, or complaints from NIMBYs, or some space-case claiming that "photosonic radiation" from optical cables was making their chihuahua nauseous), we'd get a note asking to help get things unstuck.

And yes, I too eagerly await fiber service in San Carlos. (Now to work out how/where to site the ONT in the house...)

I was told on this thread that we do not receive the newsletter until we're in engineering.


"Okay so I've heard back from the team that manages correspondence - your area isn't yet in engineering and we don't send out those monthly updates until engineering. Once you are in engineering you will start receiving the monthly updates."

I just received my first newsletter yesterday stating the following.

"The Sonic team is prepping and planning all the network in your area. We're not quite finished with Engineering, but are excited about the progress being made. We'll keep you in the loop on progress in the coming months.

Please tell your friends, family, and neighbors to sign up too!"

I guess that means we've gone from not being in Engineering last month to all of a sudden they are almost done with Engineering as of July 9th, 2019.

I have no idea what comes next and how much longer it will be till fiber becomes available in RWC but at least it looks like there is some type of progress being made.

I got the same July email that apimente1 got.
