Wave Broadband Internet: Connecting the West Coast

Wave Broadband provides copper, cable, and fiber internet, TV and home phone plans to customers in Washington, Oregon, Sacramento, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Wave promotes three main high-speed internet plans on its website: 100 Mbps download starting at $69.95/mo., 500 Mbps for $89.95/mo., and 940 Mbps for $99.95/mo. Wave also offers a cheaper option of 25 Mbps download for $47.95 that isn’t promoted on the website, so it might be worth calling about. While download speeds are fast, Wave’s standard plans don’t have symmetrical upload speeds with the fastest hitting only 10 Mbps. However, Wave’s sister company Wave G provides two symmetrical broadband plans, both with unlimited data: 100 Mbps for $60/mo. and 940 Mbps for $80/mo.

If you need unlimited data with Wave’s standard plans, the 940 Mbps plan is for you. However, unlimited data can be added to any plan for $20/mo., or you can double your data for $10/mo. You can also bundle high-speed internet with TV service, and choose from a variety of local, cable, and premium channel content packages. If you need phone service, you can get unlimited local and domestic long-distance calls for $10/mo. by combining Wave Home Phone and internet service. All Wave services are contract free and come with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

In 2017, Wave was acquired by TPG Capital. It was combined with RCN and Grande but continues to operate under its own brand, WaveDivision Holdings. In 2013, WaveDivision Holdings acquired Seattle-based Spectrum Networks and its subsidiary CondoInternet, creating Wave’s symmetrical gigabit service Wave G. Headquartered in Kirkland, Washington, Wave services over 455,000 customers in Washington, Oregon, and California. While they continue to grow, Wave never loses sight of its customers and their needs. Last year, Wave received top rankings in PCMag’s 2020 Readers’ Choice Awards for categories including customer service, tech support, and overall satisfaction.
