To showcase the start of the construction and the launch of the new brand, the company organized a launch party August 16, at its downtown location, well attended by Congressman Jimmy Panetta who spoke alongside with Santa Cruz City Councilmember David Terrazas and Bud Colligan, the Co-Chair of the Monterey Bay Economic Partnership, who all applauded the important role the internet company has played in the development of the city.
“Cruzio has contributed a lot to our community’s infrastructure by expanding broadband internet along the central coast of California,” said Congressman Panetta. “While this infrastructure investment need may not be as obvious as roads and bridges, it is equally as important and supports our economy and creates jobs.”
Considering that Santa Cruz County has ranked for years among the slowest Internet speeds in the state, according to a report filed by the city’s office of economic development, this is good news for all existing and upcoming business.
For residents and Cruzio’s existing and new customers, it’s also good news. The company started a long sign-up-a-thon, where the first 300 Santa Cruz Fiber customers will be able to buy one Gigabit per second speeds (1,000 megabits) for $49.95 a month. Existing Cruzio customers will automatically be upgraded to this”fiber-backed” suite.
The company plans to bring this upgraded suite of “fiber-backed” services throughout the County under the new Santa Cruz Fiber brand, and it plans on building a city-wide fiber optic network neighborhood-by-neighborhood as more customers get connected to the service.
