While AT&T Internet and Sparklight both offer fiber internet plans, the similarities in connection types end there. The former has IPBB and fixed wireless plans, while the latter has cable internet options if you don’t want to pay high prices for fiber internet or it’s unavailable. Starting download speeds for AT&T Internet are 25 Mbps, which are much lower than Sparklight’s starting speeds of 200 Mbps.
In terms of pricing, AT&T Internet’s lowest-priced, non-fiber plan is $55 per month, while Sparklight’s lowest-priced, non-fiber plan is $45 per month. Essentially, you’re paying less for higher download speeds with Sparklight than AT&T Internet. If speed is the name of the game instead of price, however, AT&T Internet trails ahead with download speeds up to 5 Gbps versus Sparklight’s download speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
