Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Boise
I spoke with Sparklight's customer service representatives and they were able to cut my bill in half and give me better service (faster upload speeds). It was really quick and I cut my normal bill in half. Thanks.
Is this a good value product?
Customer service was excellent when this was installed. It has been a reliable service, but is nowhere near the advertised speed. I have the 80 dollar plan and my download is only around 32 average.
Cable One Saves the Day
We switched to Cable One at my company several months ago and the internet is so much better than our previous provider. We also switched to their phone service. Yesterday our company voicemail no longer connected; it instead took callers to some generic voicemail somewhere else in the world. After talking to our phone system provider and some other local phone technicians, I gave Cable One a try. They rebooted our system and did everything on their end to fix this issue. We have no idea what triggered this random issue, but they fixed it, all the while going out of their way to make sure I was taken care of. Tech Support was awesome. I highly recommend Cable One.
We have the 40Mbps service and when it’s not buffering, it’s great. Unfortunately it buffers a lot! I’ve tried turning off WIFI on devices not being used and reducing TV resolution to improve it, but it appears to be on their end. Cable is looking better even at the increased price.
It is the best internet I have had and I recommend it to everybody. Unfortunately we are hoping to move and their hub is full so I will have to change providers. I am not looking forward to that I almost don't want to move.
I wish they offered service to my new address
Their customer service reps, techies and front office people have all, always been pleasant and helpful. It helps that I am pleasant to them. There have been only 2 outages during the 10 years I have used Cable One. They send data faster than my old computer can handle it. The price has had only one small price hike over this past decade.
