Meet Sonic

Join Us in Building a Better Internet.

A Different Kind of Internet

Founded in 1994 by owners Dane Jasper and Scott Doty, Sonic sprung from an effort to bring network connectivity and internet access to staff and students at the Santa Rosa Junior College at a time when many people hadn’t yet heard the terms internet, email address, or World Wide Web. While we’ve expanded enormously since then, our commitment to competitive, fairly-priced internet and phone access remains the same.
Today, Sonic is the largest independently-owned Internet Service Provider in Northern California, delivering fast, reliable service—without tiers or data caps—to business and homes alike. As a facilities-based telecommunications provider and certificated public utility, Sonic is focused on providing high speed connectivity, exemplary customer care, and privacy polices that protect user data.

We Put Members First

Fair, Accessible Connectivity

At Sonic, we believe access to uncapped, unlimited internet shouldn’t break the bank. Our internet + phone service is reasonably priced, ensuring every one of our customers receives convenient, reliable service on our network.

A Customer Care Industry Leader

Our customer care team is friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about helping our members get the most out of their Sonic service. We believe there’s nothing more important than the power of being nice.

Internet with Integrity

Sonic remains committed to the principles of net neutrality and a fair and open internet. We also delete our customers’ user data every two weeks, and promise never to sell or share private information.

Awards + Recognition

Sonic has been awarded a perfect score in privacy protections by the Electronic Frontier Foundation for five years, more than any other ISP.

Sonic was ranked the fastest ISP in the Southwest US, as well as the third overall fastest ISP in the country.

Sonic was ranked #1 on the West Coast by Consumer Reports, as well as the second best overall ISP in the country.

Sonic’s average Net Promoter score is the most highly ranked of any ISP, and is provided directly from our customers and how likely they are to recommend Sonic. That hasn’t gone to our heads though. We continue to improve our customer care because we want to make sure every Sonic customer is satisfied with their service.
