Optimum by Altice and Viasat Internet are Sparta's most widely available wired broadband options.
The takeaway here is that Sparta's Internet infrastructure conforms with a similar pattern to other US cities: widespread coverage for bundled cable and DSL, with the caveat that the majority of houses or apartments are limited to one company for either service.  The cable/DSL pattern comes from the fact that most Broadband Internet providers were started pre-Internet as TV and phone companies. So, they use these pre-existing copper networks for delivering Internet service. Fiber Internet is slowly growing as an alternative, and while some "Fiber" services aren't actually 100% "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) connections, 52.46 percent of the Sparta area has coverage by fiber reaching at least as far as the street outside.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Sparta
Service Electric Cable - Sparta NJ
Local Mom and Pop cable company. My only choice although they're not the best, they are not the worst. Customer service is really good, but wish I could have higher speeds at a lower price.
