Common Networks, a wireless 5G home internet provider targeting homes, announced the launch of its internet service in the South Bay region.
San Francisco-based Common Networks, founded in 2016, is using graph networks to take on traditional operators and cable networks. The company has raised more than $34 million in funding from partners including General Catalyst, Eclipse Ventures, and Lux Capital.
Common Networks is delivering internet service in Santa Clara, San Jose and Sunnyvale for a $50 a month flat rate. Common offers up to 1 Gbps home internet service to home users. There is no contract, no data caps and no additional equipment fees for broadband customers of Common Networks.
Zach Brock, CEO of Common Networks, said: “We do not have any data caps on our service, and when we have extra bandwidth, we provide that additional speed free to our customers.”
Common Networks Internet connection is already reaching Santa Clara University, and iconic buildings including Tisch Tower, 2350 Mission College, and Casino M8trix, to ensure that local residents can benefit from service.
Common is now launching to more than 30,000 residents in Santa Clara County, in addition to the over 50,000 residents it can already serve in Alameda, California, with plans to expand into other Bay Area communities this year.
