We had a technician from Sparklight come to our home today for a customer support call and I have nothing but great things to say about him. He was reliable, friendly, honest and just did an overall great job!! Wish all service repair people were like him!
Okay / Not Great
If you want to play games online then you will be kicked off the net before you can even get started. You would think with it being 2020 they would update from 2002 technology. It seems to do fine with steaming videos. Gets annoying having to reset the internet 5-6 times a day on average. I don’t normally complain but I feel like I shouldn’t be resetting it every time just for it to work as it should.
Thank you to Tech in Cottonwood!!
Just wanted to give a shout out to Technician in Cottonwood. New customer, and he was very helpful with my internet and TV set up.
Fixed internet and added more channels
Tech from Sparklight came to the house to fix our internet. He did a wonderful job. He was on time and accurate in his work. Thank You Sparklight!
Tech was very respectful and knowledgeable service person. He explained the problem and made sure it met his criteria before he left. I am very pleased with the service I received.
Awesome. Internet speeds can get to 150 Mbps download, 75 Mbps upload. I love it.
Tech installed my internet and modem today. He was professional, courteous and helpful. A great experience today. Thank you.
Fast, Reliable, & Expensive
The internet service is fast and reliable but you'll pay some of the highest prices in the country for it. Their plans all come with low data caps and you have to pay an extra $40 bucks for "unlimited". Of course by unlimited they mean 5TB.
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.
From bad to worse since Sparklight rebranding
Having no competition, CableOne has had overpriced, slow, and inconsistent speeds for the last fifteen years I have been their customer. But since the Sparklight change, it has gotten much worse. Now their customer login page regularly fails to load, and when the speed test they provide in the portal does load, the speeds often fall below 5Mbps (up and down using a wired connection) on a 300/30 plan. Working from home has become almost intolerable, and there are still no viable alternatives in this market. The data caps have added insult to the whole process - now its either buy a higher plan that you won't ever get the advertised speeds for OR blow the data cap when one computer automatically updates itself that month.
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.
The technician, Brent, who fixed our connection and service was awesome!! Very knowledgeable, professional and got the job done correctly! Great Job!
Great service tech
Tech came to rewire our whole house, not like the previous technician that had been called out several times for the same issue... This one fixed my problem and was very courteous and polite and finished the job in a timely manner. Thank you for your wonderful service. We no longer have problems with the internet nor our phone lines.
Cable One is definitely faster at 100Mbps. One month and no interruptions in service. I have DirecTV for television service. So can only comment about Cable One's internet. Would definitely recommend.
Makes you count data usage as if your life depended on it.
Can't comfortably watch Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, etc. comfortably without putting the video to an ugly quality just so you don't go over the cap. They increase the speed over the time I had their service, but what good is bigger hose when you still have the tiny reservoir to draw that water from? It just makes it easier to mistakenly go over cap. Get your own router, install DD-WRT on it, and monitor your data closely. It's like we're still in 2005 or something with this slim selection of ISPs, and they like it like that. I'm actively wishing a competitor comes along.
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.
Data cap needs to be increased or eliminated
After 3 months and 3 notices that I had to exceed my data limit, I received my latest bill from Cable One almost doubling my monthly fee for internet. I called other providers to compare and they offer 1 TB of data for basically the same price that Cable One offers only 300 GB, the speed may be slightly slower but these days, speed is not as much as an issue as data. In today's world where video streaming is becoming the norm, and game consoles are allowing people to download their favorite games directly to the gaming system, data is becoming much more important than speed. Most internet providers have recognized this and have either raised the caps on their data limit or ignore it all together. Cable One needs to get with the times and realize that speed is no longer the selling point for internet, Data is.
I like it overall
The installer was rude but the lady in the office is a sweetheart. As far as the service, I get half of what I am paying for but it is enough. I do not like the cap though. I always wonder if I am going to run over the limit. I have had this for a year and lucky to have it.
Wireless terrible, wired okay, streaming is limited and service expensive
I have internet service at two houses in two states with different vendors (so I know what to expect). I have used Cable One in downtown Prescott AZ for 12 years but if there were a serious alternative in Prescott AZ, I would probably make the change. The internet service is 30% more expensive (compared to my other house), is limited in streaming capacity (compared to the fiber optics at the other house), the wired connection for my home office computer works okay but the wireless capacity (which is 10 feet away from the wired connection) works terribly. As an example, today's exercise program that I was streaming between 4-5 pm took almost an hour (twice the 30-minute length) with 20 interruptions of 15 seconds to 5 minutes duration. This result happens more often than not in the afternoons.
Best speed and service in town
The tech arrived on time, installed modem where it would get WiFi to my device. Tech showed me that I was getting more than the speed I was paying for on my computer.
DO NOT BUNDLE WITH CABLE ONE!
Internet speed and reliability is probably slightly better than average, but the bundled phone service sucks! As a business, I rely on my phone. Never had a phone problem with other providers for 17 years of business here. Nothing but problems with Cable One. They can hear me, but I can't hear them. Calls to Cable One are useless. I'll go back to DSL internet speed to get my phone service back to normal.
After $15 of mandatory surcharges for 'broadcast TV' and 'sports', $20 for equipment (HD/DVR receiver & HD Digital converter, we elected to provide our own cable modem), and other fees, Cableone charges almost $175 a month for its Preferred Bundle - HDTV & Internet (100Mbps down/3Mbps up). We rarely get more than 20-25Mbps down, and rarely are able to stream an HD TV show due to "insufficient bandwidth". In short, if there was any reasonable competition, we'd jump in a minute.
Cable One Internet Only Service
Cable One is by far the fastest provider in Bartlesville area. However, the speed of the service varies widely during an average day. Early in the day, you will get your rated speed on an ethernet connection but by midday, it is slowing by about half. Service is reliable. One or two outages per year usually fixed in a matter of hours. Technical customer service is very good. But when you contact support over slow speed you will receive a script telling you to make changes to your equipment. The price tag for all levels of internet service is the highest you will encounter. Don't recommend moving to BVO for the Internet service.
Don't do it
I have had problems with my internet service for the past year. The internet is down at least 30% in a week. This is unacceptable since I work from home. I cant get a credit because the issue seems like it will never be resolved. Once I was offered a refund for a few dollars. Hilarious. I would not recommend Cableone internet or phone.
Solid internet at $60/month
Very rarely have internet drop. Does lag during congested times but I'm pretty heavy data user so probably not an issue for most. Runs about $60 after taxes.
Basic internet okay but not for streaming.
Internet for PC use is fine. But we can't stream anything without several reboots. Just upgraded to a better streaming package and it's only a slight improvement. So now, we only have to reboot 2-5 times during a movie instead of giving up completely half way through.
Data cap a deal breaker
Quality service and internet speed are awesome, the only complaint is their data caps. If you like streaming services like Netflix and Sling you are screwed with Cable One.
Too Expensive for what you get.
If you use a lot of data which a lot of people use more then they think, stay away from cable one, Their data cap gets in the way a lot and the price is just too high for something that you have to constantly watch. We have 3 tv's that would like to stream Netflix or Hulu but can't not because of the speed which is amazing with that number of people, they just can't because we can't afford to go over our data cap.
High Speed Broadband
Excellent Customer Service
Great internet but expensive and not unlimited
I love Cable ONE. However, since they have gotten greedy and stopped the unlimited data it has turned into the most expensive internet in town. 300 GB isn't enough for a family of 5. I pay $69.95 for 300 GB for a month. And they force you to the 500 GB if you go over 3 months in a row. Which means your bill goes up to $105.00 a month. I am going to be leaving Cable ONE because of this. If they ever offer unlimited internet for a decent price I will return.
Best you can get in Show Low
Cable One is the fastest internet you can get in Show Low today. My experience has been good. My only "complaint" is that the service pricing level is much higher than it should be. Why? I think it's lack of competition. Frontier is not exactly "competition". If other similar services providers (i.e. Cox) were able to compete in this area I think the pricing would be more like what you see in metro Phoenix. Low score for "value", but the service is good and very reliable.
Fast, reliable service
Service is fast and reliable. Data cap thresholds are very easy to run over for a family household of five people, and I am looking into other providers due to their data caps.
Best service around
If you have access to CableOne as an ISP you are very lucky.They have the best speed, service, reliability, and price of any providers available to me. Thank goodness CableOne brought their service to us even outside of the city limits and it has been great.
Good speed, Low data limits
I have 100 Mbps service and have a data cap of 300GB. That equates to about 7 hours of 100% download for the month! We have a household of 4 people who use the internet for facebook, youtube, gaming, and Netflix. Add to that the updates for games and software and it gets very close. If you add in video and music purchases from iTunes, it's downright impossible.
If you go over your (small) monthly allotment they will offer a higher tier plan for 3 months or terminate your service. The internet itself is pretty reliable, only going down for a few minutes every day but you'll never get your advertised speed.
I've ran speed test and they've come back with the advertised speed and the service has been reliable.
Great speed, terrible data cap
Their speed is great, but they have a data cap of only 300Gb on their base package. It is absolutely worthless for normal gamer/streamer usage. In my first billing cycle, I used 809GB of data.
Better than other ISPs, I guess.
The speed and price are nothing special but I've had worse. Frequent short outages. Not a month goes by where service doesn't mysteriously disappear for a block of at least an hour, occasionally all day, with no notice. Their cable TV division also apparently had a row with Viacom because they were raising their fees and dropped their channels; so Viacom decided to block the I.P. addresses of all of their subscribers, whether they had TV or not; this meant I couldn't (still can't) watch Daily Show on its website, even though I don't even buy cable TV! (Fortunately I was able to work-around with Hulu.) Just the usual nonsense in this poorly regulated industry.
Good Sometime, Poor Sometime~
Mostly I've been satisfied with Cable One, but the last two days, I've had good reception in the morning and none on my computer in the afternoon and evening. They're telling me that it isn't on their end, but I don't see how that's possible.
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.
