Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Brookhaven

Well done

The setup for my home was not easy, but the Sparklight techs told me what needed to be done. I replaced the old cable through the attic, and they tuned the line from their end, and now I have about 10-15% faster speed than they say they are giving me. Thank you Sparklight for hanging in there through the process. I am now tickled pink with my new high-speed internet!
