The internet you need for distance learning.

Distance learning has made reliable high-speed internet connectivity essential for every student household.

That’s why Sonic is excited to partner with Berkeley Unified School District (BUSD) to deliver free fiber internet to all BUSD student households for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, offering more than enough bandwidth for distance learning without the cost.

How it works.

Households with at least one BUSD Pre K-12 student are eligible for the free Sonic Fiber internet service and equipment through July 1, 2021. Sonic Fiber service may not be available in all areas. No contract is required. Offer is available to qualifying new Sonic Fiber Internet customers in eligible service areas that meet criteria as outlined above. Offer is only applicable to new households and not applicable to current Sonic Members or recent Sonic Members (in the past 90 days).
