Cable One, Inc. (NYSE: CABO) is an American broadband communications provider. They are a former subsidiary of Graham Holdings Company. The company's name and current focus date back to 1997; prior to that time the company was known as Post-Newsweek Cable. It is headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, though it does not service the Phoenix area. Sparklight provides service to 21 states and 900,000 residential and business customers.
In summer 2019, Cable One, Inc re-branded themselves as Sparklight. Cable One units are still used by customers that were Cable One customers before Cable One turned into Sparklight. Cable One's original website, cableone.net, now redirects to sparklight.com. Before, cableone.net redirected to a page saying that Cable One was now Sparklight, although home.cableone.net is still up. Although Sparklight is direct fiber, numerous complaints about drops in their service and underperforming speeds have been the center of controversy.
Sparklight provides phone service plans such as Economy Phone, Standard Phone, and Elite Package with Starter Plan Plus.
Sparklight's cable TV plans include Economy Cable TV, Standard Cable TV, and Elite 100 Plus. Cable TV can be accessed on Apple iPhone, Android, Windows, Roku, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Nook. Sparklight has a Digital Value Pack and offers Red Zone, HBO, and Showtime as add-ons.
