- Connect Your Home: Sparklight offers Wi-Fi connection in every room when you use a Sparklight modem for an additional $10.50/mo. The company is confident in the performance of their modem, offering a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you aren’t satisfied with the speed in any room of your home, you can receive a credit for activation or installation charges.
- Unlimited data package: Do you use your internet to watch television and movies? Your binge-watching habits could burn through data quickly, so you should consider the unlimited data feature.

Sparklight, formerly Cable One, gets an A rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB), based on the speed at which it addresses complaints from customers on that site. The flip side is that it only has an average one-star rating based on more than 40 customer reviews. Some complaints cite problems with internet speeds, customer service, and data caps as reasons for customer dissatisfaction.
The internet service provider received a slightly better average score of 2.5 out of five stars on Trustpilot. That’s based on more than 30 reviews. Customers on that platform said they encountered similar issues with speed throttling and data caps. A few positive reviews praised the affordable pricing of basic internet services and Sparklight technicians who came to install service.

Advantages of using Sparklight
- No contract: This means you’re under no obligation to remain a customer if you’re not satisfied with the service Sparklight offers.
- Bundling options: If you’re looking for more than just internet service, then you’re in luck with Sparklight. It offers several different packages where you can mix and match internet, TV, and phone.
- Credit for a streaming service: Sign up for Netflix for a year, using the $12.99/mo. credit from Sparklight.
Disadvantages of using Sparklight
- Data caps: If you’re someone who streams video a lot, then the allotted data for each package might not be enough for you each month (without forcing you to pay $10 for each additional 100GB of data). Don’t want a data cap? You can upgrade to the unlimited data plan for an additional $40/mo.
- Price increases: When you take advantage of one of Sparklight’s new customer specials, the price is only good for the first three, six, or 12 months, depending on the deal. As long as you’re able to pay the normal price once it kicks in, you can still enjoy the benefit of the temporary discount.
