Review Of CenturyLink Internet Service
CenturyLink Internet is a mix of ADSL2+, VDSL2, fiber to the node (FTTN), and fiber to the premises (FTTP) due to previous mergers. Download speeds will vary from region to region, but the main CenturyLink plans range from 12 Mbps up to 1 Gbps in some areas.
The company offers all the services you've come to expect from a telco - unlimited voice, high speed DSL or fiber Internet (depending upon location), and 100% digital television with multiple HD channels. They also offer wireless home security monitoring.
Their fiber-based TV service is called Prism® TV. For those customers in locations where Prism® is not available, you can bundle CenturyLink Internet with DIRECTV.
Special Offer: Depending upon which CenturyLink Internet plan or bundle you choose, you can get a prepaid gift card worth from $25 up to $150 when you order online.
In addition to prepaid cards, CenturyLink is also providing free activation & free shipping on orders for high speed Internet. This is also only for online orders. However, all Internet plans include 24/7 technical support, Norton with CenturyLink @Ease®, plus in-home WiFi.
CenturyLink is the result of merging three mid-sized telecoms. Back in 2009, CenturyTel and Embarq completed their merger and assumed the new CenturyLink name. In early 2011, the company completed it's merger with Qwest and reached it's present size.
