Our expert take on CenturyLink

If you are new to a CenturyLink area or thinking about trying them out for the first time, you’re probably wondering if CenturyLink internet services are any good. Here’s our expert take on the advantages and disadvantages of going with CenturyLink home services. 

Pros:

  • Reasonably-priced internet plans with wireless home Wi-Fi. Though CenturyLink prices may start a little higher than other providers, they make up for it by offering Price for Life offers, which means your monthly price won’t go up for the life of the plan.  
  • No contract internet and phone plans. CenturyLink doesn’t have pesky long-term agreements and early termination fees to worry about.
  • Bundle with DIRECTV to get the complete package. Though not required, the CenturyLink and DIRECTV bundling option is great if you need both TV and internet. 
  • Get support whenever you need it. CenturyLink customer service is available Monday-Friday and tech support is available 24/7.

Cons:

  • Your internet speed can vary depending on location. Like other internet service providers, the speed of internet that CenturyLink offers in your area can vary, and fiber-optic service is only available in select cities.
  • Modem and installation fees. CenturyLink charges a monthly fee for modem and router rental. However, you can avoid this fee by purchasing your own equipment. You can also choose contactless or self-installation to try and reduce upfront costs. 
  • Internet data limits on most plans. CenturyLink has a 1 TB data limit on most internet plans. The good news? You won’t get charged extra if you go over, though you may receive a written warning. Or sign up for the 1 Gig plan, where available, and you won’t have to worry about data limits at all.
