Sonic, a California based networking firm has completed the a large scale upgradation of a office park in Santa Rosa, a move being observed by many as a sign of aggressive expansion in the state. This happens at a time when other internet service providing giants like Verizon and AT&T have begun their penetration into Sonoma County.
Sonic started as a small internet that relied its survival and push on old dial-up connection services. However, since the rapid rise of broadband in the US in the late 2000s, the firm started focusing on driving up its service for the upgraded technology. In 2011, Sonic entered the fiber optics market. The first project it successfully implemented was a residential one one in Sebastopol. From there on it won bids to for projects in San Francisco and Stanford University.
