If you’re looking for a non-monolithic internet service provider in the environment of a non-neutral internet, there are some alternatives. Sonic.com is one.
The CEO of Sonic, Dane Jasper, has a reputation of being an avid proponent of net neutrality, and of privacy for his customers. In step with the end of net neutrality, Sonic has recently expanded its gigabit fiber service to include more areas of the East Bay in Oakland, Albany, Kensington, and El Cerrito at a price of $40/month.
Hopefully, as its customer base increases, Sonic will continue to expand its conscientious service to more East Bay areas.
