I switched to Sonic at the end of last year because I couldn't get satisfaction from AT&T customer support. Because I am out of Sonic's area they still have to use AT&T infrastructure to provide their service but I have a much more stable connection.
I am pretty sure nobody outside of Sonic.net's "area" can get Sonic.net service.
Sonic.net does offer their own product ("Fusion") where they have their own ADSL2+ equipment in an AT&T CO.
Where "Fusion" isn't available within the AT&T footprint, Sonic.net resells AT&T ADSL service.
Even where "Fusion" is available, Sonic.net still uses AT&T copper from the CO to the premises.
Only in the limited area of FTTH deployment does Sonic.net have there own infrastructure.
My OS is Ubuntu 12.04 and today I downloaded the latest and greatest Chromium browser (Version 23.0.1262.0). I have been using Chromium since last November and today's version marks a measurable difference in speed and performance. I just thought I would alert people to this positive development and see if there are others that experience the same thing.
I have set up two Sonic.net "Fusion" lines; one at a premises which formerly had AT&T ADSL service. Performance is, indeed improved; due to the fact that Sonic.net does not sell tiered profiles.
I am not certain I can explain improved performance on a resold AT&T line, where Sonic.net resells AT&T tiered ADSL profiles.--
