Wave Broadband is expanding its gigabit broadband internet service to residential and small business customers on the West Coast.

The company today announced that its high-speed 1,000 Mbps service is now available for $80 per month, and $99 per month after one year.

Previously Wave only offered its gigabit internet to large businesses and select condominium and apartment buildings; now homes and small businesses can access the same service in Wave’s coverage area that includes Seattle, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Portland, along with more than 200 additional communities.

Kirkland, Wash.-based Wave has been steadily building out its fiber infrastructure for years, and the company says it has 7,500 miles of fiber lines along the West Coast in Washington, Oregon and California. Wave is in the middle of being acquired TPG Capital and combining with two other companies — RCN Telecom Services and Grande Communications Networks — to form the nation’s sixth largest internet and cable operator in a $2.36 billion deal.

Wave has more than 70,000 subscribers in the Seattle region, where other Comcast and CenturyLink also offer gigabit internet to residential customers.
