ORLANDO, Fla., June 11, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sonic, the largest independent internet service provider (ISP) in California, received the Fiber Broadband Association (FBA) 2019 Star Award for excellence in the fiber industry. At its Fiber Connect show in Orlando, Florida, the FBA honored Sonic for its dedication to advancing the fiber broadband industry over the past year.

Sonic has expanded its gigabit fiber service at an impressive pace, with its latest and largest-ever expansion launch in March 2019. Residents and businesses in the territories Sonic serves have access to fiber connectivity that streams at up to 1000Mbps— up to 20 times faster than the average download speed in America.

“Recognition from our peers at the Fiber Broadband Association is a true honor,” said Dane Jasper, co-founder and CEO of Sonic. “Having high-speed, reliable internet is no longer a luxury. It’s a must-have. That’s why for more than 25 years, we’ve worked tirelessly to expand access to the best possible internet service, doing whatever it takes to protect consumer choice and the right to competitive internet options that all consumers deserve. We’re proud to commit to doing that for the next 25 and beyond.”

“The Fiber Broadband Association is thrilled to honor Sonic for their efforts to deploy all-fiber networks to communities and business across North America,” said FBA President and CEO Lisa R. Youngers. “We cannot do this alone. Fiber is a true differentiator and we are grateful for all of the people and companies with us on the path to the fiber future.”
