Wave Broadband has launched gigabit Internet service for residential and business customers throughout its West Coast coverage areas. Effective immediately, the new Gig Speed Internet offering is available across Wave's footprint in Washington, Oregon and California.

In Seattle, San Francisco and Portland, Wave gigabit Internet was previously only available to select apartment and condo buildings.

The 1 Gbps service for residential customers is available at a retail promotional rate of $80 per month for the first year and comes with Wave's Unlimited Data plan. After that time, a monthly rate of $99 applies.

Wave Gig Speed for Business is designed for smaller businesses and includes no limits on data usage. Wave Business also provides gigabit and faster fiber solutions for larger enterprise companies.

"We are thrilled to launch gigabit speeds throughout our coverage areas in Washington, Oregon and California," said Harold Zeitz, president and COO of Wave. "During the past several years, Wave has focused on growing our fiber network specifically to accommodate gigabit and faster connections for our customers. The demand for fast, reliable Internet connections at an affordable price is growing, and our Gig Speed Internet is the ideal solution for both residential and business customers."

In May, Wave Broadband was acquired by TPG Capital, which also owns RCN and Grande Communications. Wave itself bought Seattle-based Internet service provider Cascadelink in April.
