Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Santa Rosa
Top speeds and top customer service
I've had Sonic for the last year and a half, and it's been great. So great that I'm sad they don't serve the new city I'm moving to. The fiber connection gets you 1 Gbps upload and download speeds. Though you will have to plug in directly using an ethernet cable to experience those speeds - over WiFi using the mesh network I've mostly gotten somewhere between a 100 and 300 Mbps, which is still really fast. Their customer service is also great. There is almost never a try to upsell you on anything. When I called in earlier to cancel the service because of my move, they didn't even ask me for the new address to see if there is a way to continue the service. Basically, VERY straight to the point. The customer service members that I've interacted with (not many, because issues happen very rarely) have all been friendly and knowledgeable too. I'll miss ya, Sonic!
Sonic fiber is awesome
Waited a long time for this 'best in class' service. Great service at a bargain price.
Sonic is amazing
Gigabit speeds from order to delivery in one week. Amazing staff. Just wow.
The best Internet service - if you can get Gigabit
Sonic Gigabit service is hands down the best Internet service you can get. The combination of maximum bi-directional speed, zero data caps, privacy, included features (e.g. VPN), and superb support, not to mention good pricing vs. the competition, simply can't be beaten. It's a shame their gigabit service isn't more widely available, but hopefully, it will be soon. In the meantime, if you're in their coverage areas in Sonoma County or the Bay Area, count yourself lucky and enjoy!
The amazing speeds and reliability are worth the cost of less than $100 a month! The best ISP I have ever had!
Long-time customer, love the speed and net neutrality
Fiber upload speed is great to have for uploading data. Expansion has made average worker about the same as other companies, but mgt seems good overall, and the user boards fill in the less-commonly-needed details for people who want to augment somehow.
Technical Support Team - Fabulous
I've had major problems with my TV & phone. 2 gentlemen came to my house today, they checked everything out & fixed it. They listened, were thorough & knowledgeable. I got a review phone call to ask about my experience but was driving & couldn't press buttons for the survey. I did was to make sure that they got a superlative rating. Thanks.
I've been a DSL customer for a couple of years at least. I love the service. When my phone quit, I texted Sonic. Within two minutes I received a text telling me two things to try, the first one worked. On the other occasion, I sent a text and a tech called me and walked me through a solution. Now fiber, which is an order of magnitude faster download; the upload is equally fast! Awesome!
Super fast sonic -
Super fast - easy install - uses existing ethernet in house and works great. WIFI super great too!
