    Gigabit 'net coming to the City.

    San Francisco residents will be able to download even more dirty movies come 2012, as Sonic.net plans to install an all-fiber Gigabit network.

    The Santa Rosa-based company filed a permit application to initially install the 1Gps network for 2000 homes in the Sunset District. The network will eventually encompass the entire city over five years.

    “San Francisco is our fastest-growing market for copper delivered Fusion Broadband+Phone service today, so we are very excited to bring our Fiber-optic upgrade process to the city,” said Dane Jasper, CEO & Co-Founder of Sonic.net. “There is a huge demand in San Francisco for higher bandwidth services, and fiber is the only long-term way to meet this demand.”

    Sonic currently offers Fiber services in Sebastopol, CA, for 100Mbps at $39.95, and 1Gbps for $69.95.
