In a time when fast and reliable internet is more critical than ever, Sparklight was honored as third in the nation on PC Magazine’s list of the top 10 Fastest Internet Service Providers (ISPs) of 2021.

The leader for rigorous, labs-based comparative reviews of internet products, PC Magazine tested ISPs via PCMag Speedtest from April 1, 2020 through June 7, 2021 — a time period that saw unprecedented broadband usage due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We have engineered a robust and reliable network to support the high-speed internet needs of our customers and communities — today and in the future,” said Julie Laulis, president and CEO.

“As a result of the company’s continued planning and investment in our network, we were able to meet the surge in internet usage throughout the pandemic and provide the seamless connectivity that was so critical over the past year.

“We are actively working to ensure our customers have access to a state-of-the-art network designed to handle future technological advances that will revolutionize the way we do things and lead to groundbreaking changes in communication, health care, education, entertainment and more,” Laulis said.

Sparklight Business was also named a Top Business Internet Service Provider by PC Magazine, ranking fifth in the nation out of 23 internet providers.

The magazine asked businesses to rate their internet service provider based on a variety of criteria, including overall satisfaction, cost, reliability, support and whether they would recommend their provider. Sparklight Business scored top marks in all categories.
