SAN FRANCISCO, March 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sonic, the largest independent internet service provider in California, continues its growth and momentum by announcing its biggest expansion to date. Today, Sonic Gigabit Fiber internet service is available to pre-order for residents of 19 new San Francisco Bay Area neighborhoods including Burlingame, San Mateo, Hillsborough, South San Francisco and portions of Cow Hollow, parts of Pacific Heights, Lower Pacific Heights, Russian Hill, Nob Hill, Chinatown, North Beach, San Carlos, Petaluma, Belmont, San Bruno, Millbrae, Redwood City, North Fair Oaks, and Emerald Hills. Pre-orders are now available on the Sonic website, and installations will begin this spring.

With a footprint already in San Francisco, this expansion marks Sonic’s first move down the Peninsula. 

“As interest in cable continues to decline and streaming services gain more traction, having high-speed, reliable internet is no longer a luxury. It’s a must-have,” said Dane Jasper, co-founder and CEO of Sonic. “For those looking to escape cable’s monopoly, Sonic provides a fast and affordable alternative that can power everything from streaming entertainment services to laptops and tablets to smart home devices.”

Following a series of expansions of its Gigabit Fiber service over the years, including expansions in Southern San Francisco, the East Bay, the Mission, and other key Bay Area neighborhoods, this expansion underscores the demand Sonic is seeing from all internet users for high-speed service. Consumers, as well as a host of local businesses like Girl Geek X, Hook Fish Co., Awayco, Pizzetta 211, and Andytown Coffee Roasters all depend on Sonic’s Gigabit Fiber for high-speed internet connectivity.

“I conduct my small business from home, and time spent waiting for emails to send or for important documents to download is simply time I can't afford to lose,” said Angie Chang of Berkeley. “That's why I immediately signed up for Sonic fiber to be installed. It's affordable and easy - and now I don't have to worry about my VOIP calls being dropped or freezing. I like to support the local business, and Sonic is located in nearby Santa Rosa. The other options for internet service in the San Francisco Bay Area are not appealing."

“When searching for an internet provider, Sonic was the obvious choice,” said Christian Morabito, co-founder of Hook Fish Co. “They not only provide the best and fastest internet service around, but they're customer-focused, responsive, and always easy to work with.”

With this rollout, Sonic will offer unlimited, uncapped, symmetric Gigabit Fiber internet plus unlimited domestic and international home phone service starting at $40 per month. Residents and businesses in these neighborhoods will have access to Gigabit Fiber internet connectivity, which streams at up to 1000Mbps--20 times faster than the average download speed in America.

Added Jasper, “This year will mark Sonic’s 25th anniversary, and our biggest expansion ever.  We look forward to continuing the momentum as we work toward our ultimate goal of building a better, more affordable internet in the Bay Area and beyond.”
