Although most of its plans don’t have unlimited data, Sparklight does offer generous data caps. Keep in mind that when you exceed the data limit, you’ll have to pay an overage fee — $10 for every 100 GB that you go beyond the monthly data allowance (maxing out at $40).

Sparklight Internet Speeds

Sparklight offers cable and fiber internet connections with download speeds ranging from 200 Mbps to 1 Gbps. Cable internet is the most common because it uses preexisting coaxial cables, a system that was implemented to deliver sound and video for cable TV. Fiber internet is much faster and uses newer technology via light instead of electricity to transmit data. These new fiber-optic cables are more expensive to produce and install, which is why fiber internet plans cost more than cable ones.
