Wave Broadband’s residential gigabit efforts in California are underway.
The company today announced that it is now offering gigabit service in the San Francisco area, with its Wave G symmetrical gigabit and 100 Mbps product now live at the NEMA, a 750-unit property in Mid-Market. Customers can access the high-speed Internet for $80 per month at a promotional price.
Wave has offered residential gigabit in Seattle since 2008, but is now expanding to San Francisco apartments and condominiums. The growth comes after $130 million in financing the company reeled in last month to accelerate Wave’s fiber construction up and down the West Coast. Wave will build an additional 1,500 more miles of fiber by the end of 2015 — nearly double of what was installed in 2014 — which adds to 5,000 miles of existing fiber.
Wave employs 1,000 and serves more than 420,000 customers in Washington, Oregon, and California.
