Fiber Is Here

Posted August 27, 2015 by Webpass

Today we announced the launch of our fiber service to residential and business customers in San Francisco. Webpass’ fiber deployment will build upon our existing network with improved fault tolerance and geographically diverse pathways improving each and every customer’s experience.

San Francisco is arguably the most prominent and largest tech city in the world and local residents deserve faster speeds and more alternatives to the bigger cable companies. Our “Simple Urban Fiber” product fills the void. We already offer speeds ranging from 100 Mbps – 1 Gbps via our point-to-point wireless service, but fiber deployment will enable speeds 10 times greater, and provide long-term network reliability for current and future customers.

Speed and reliability are dire needs when it comes to Internet service in San Francisco. We recognized these needs long ago, and have a history of delivering speeds 10 times faster than those provided by competitors large and small. We want to give our customers the fastest, most reliable network possible and fiber will help us continue to make network upgrades and support the increased download rates expected in the future.

Deployment will occur in phases (build-outs) and existing Webpass residential customers will receive service via a combination of point-to-point wireless and fiber optics.To find out if your business is eligible for Webpass fiber, check out our map, to see where fiber will be first deployed. This map will be updated as the build-out occurs. We will also be taking requests for custom fiber builds, so businesses not located within the initial highlighted area can request fiber service via the online form or by calling 1-800-WEBPASS.
