Sparklight shares territory with AT&T, CenturyLink, and Frontier, to name a few. Generally, Sparklight is the better deal when compared to DSL service. But when pitted against fiber from just about any provider, it falls short.
Sparklight vs. AT&T: Sparklight and AT&T share a footprint in the Midwest and Eastern US. If you can get an AT&T fiber plan, you can save up to $30 a month for the same speed at Sparklight. AT&T also delivers better performance and customer service. Unless you need speeds slower than 300 Mbps, AT&T is likely the better choice.
Sparklight vs. CenturyLink: CenturyLink has both DSL and fiber internet. If you can get Century Link’s fiber service, choose that. If you’re comparing Sparklight’s cable plans with CenturyLink DSL, Sparklight will be the better deal.
Sparklight vs. Frontier: Frontier is one of the cheapest fiber internet providers out there, but its DSL is both slow and expensive. Its 500 Mbps fiber plan is around half the price of Sparklight’s. But at speeds closer to 25 Mbps, Sparklight typically wins the price war. Neither company delivers stellar customer service, but the Sparklight experience is a bit better.
Sparklight currently serves customers in the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas.
The communities where Sparklight is available are mostly suburban or rural, where fiber is rarely offered. Cable internet from Sparklight is a solid option in these areas, where you otherwise might only be able to choose from DSL or satellite.
