Faster gigabit services are coming to San Francisco, thanks to Wave Broadband. The company has announced plans to offer its “Wave-G” gigabit service to NEMA, a new 750-unit high-rise in the city’s Mid-Market neighborhood, and will be initially charging users $80 per month. “As a company that has provided robust and reliable gigabit service to tens of thousands of consumers for the past six years, we are excited to extend our gigabit offerings to San Francisco for the first time, especially in a premier development like NEMA,” said John van Oppen, SVP of CondoInternet and Wave.
Although there’s no evidence that the “Wave-G” service will see greater deployment across San Francisco, Wave did say it secured over $100 million in financing to bolster its fiber network expansion in California, Oregon, and Washington. In addition to its deployment in San Francisco, Wave has also brought its gigabit services to a number of Seattle condo developments in the past year.
