Looks like I got it in Roseville, CA as well.
Surprised it took so long actually since the north bay has had it almost a year now. Hopefully this means faster upstream speeds are not far behind. I've been thinking about switching to Surewest 15/15 fiber once they install it on our street in place of Comcast Blast tier(25/4-30/5) I'm on now particularly for the extra upload speed but this might convince me to stick around a bit longer :D
* edit I did a little more investigating to see if speeds were any different and I noticed a slight drop in ping times using the line quality / ping test tool on this site. Went from upper 80s to lower 80s avg. Was expecting a slightly bigger improvement.
The downside is shaper probe now shows I'm no longer getting the 5mbps upstream I was getting before. Now shows being shaped at around 4400kbps instead of 5100kbps consistently :(
