SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sonic, the largest independent internet service provider in CA, has announced it will be expanding its Gigabit Fiber internet service to the East Bay to include key areas across Berkeley and Albany, along with parts of El Cerrito, Kensington and Oakland. This marks the company’s largest fiber expansion to date. Residents can check service availability and order today at Sonic.com.

With this rollout, Sonic will offer unlimited, uncapped Gigabit Fiber internet plus international home phone service starting at $40 per month. Now residents and businesses in these neighborhoods will have access to Gigabit, or 1000Mbps, fiber internet connectivity, which is 50 times faster than the average download speed in America. Gigabit speeds provide incredibly fast downloads and uploads, seamless video chatting, improved online collaboration and a flawless streaming experience.

“This is a huge milestone in Sonic’s history, making our largest expansion to date as a company,” said Dane Jasper, co-founder and CEO of Sonic. “As deregulation continues to threaten the competitive marketplace for ISPs, it’s more important than ever for customers to have choices when selecting an internet provider. Today’s news brings us one step closer toward our goal of bringing faster, affordable internet to all Bay Area residents.”

Earlier this year, Sonic expanded its San Francisco service to the southern portion of The Mission and the surrounding communities of Noe Valley, The Castro, Dolores Heights, Glen Park, Potrero Hill and Sunnyside. Despite the challenges faced by independent ISPs, Sonic continues to grow and expand its presence throughout California, doubling down on its Fiber offerings in particular.

Customers like Tim Wilkinson, an entrepreneur based in Berkeley, depend on Sonic for its excellent customer service and fast, reliable internet. "I’ve been a Sonic customer for almost 10 years. Every week I receive yet another offer from competitors for their services but, while it can be tempting, their poor customer service and lack of commitment to net neutrality have always stopped me from switching. With Sonic offering Gigabit networking in Berkeley, I can finally get the networking speeds I want from a company I trust to always do the right thing."

Sonic is also used by companies like Digilock, which uses Sonic to scale its business.
