Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Rochester

Sparklight Review

I spend $200 a month with this service but I have yet to watch a 30 min episode on Netflix without a loading bar. I’m switching to PMT -- I’ll pay for the same service I get with Sparklight but pay 3x less.

Daniel is a G.O.A.T.

Daniel was quick and efficient in switching out my channels over the phone. Very professional and deserves a raise and or promotion. 10/10 would recommend Daniel if you get the chance.

Awesome technician and sales support

My sales rep was very patient and set me up with install time/packages in a timely manner and my installation technician installed over ten units in one day for me. They got the job done and saved me a headache for the following week.

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.
