The CenturyLink Internet service has been pretty known for its Price for Life deals, that were highly popular among customers who appreciate a long term relationship with the ISP. While the CenturyLink Price for Life offer is no more on the table, you can still expect to enjoy better price consistency with CenturyLink relative to competition. As well as other advantages that make it one of the top choices in its service locations.

1. Reliable & Fast Speeds

CenturyLink Internet is predominantly delivered via a hybrid network. It works by transferring data over fiber optic lines until it reaches a neighborhood’s distribution point where it switches to copper phone lines up to the subscriber’s location. By throwing in an innovative mix of DSL-based technologies, CenturyLink is thus able to enhance the performance of its high-speed DSL Internet. The service delivers up to 100 Mbps downloads, and offers fast speeds that suffice standard usage in a small to mid sized household. Multiple device connectivity, as you work from home, stream video, or play online, is consistent - CenturyLink pledges to deliver 99% reliability (based on network uptime or availability of the network).

If however you have a fast-paced life and want a speedy internet connection that can keep up with your lifestyle, CenturyLink fiber internet is the right choice. With speeds up to 940 Mbps, multiple users can stay connected. You can enjoy HD movies and 4K gameplay or work from home and attend school online. Plus, connect your smart home devices such as smart TV, a smart security system etc. The only downside you can experience is limited availability.

2. Unlimited Data

Unlimited data across all CenturyLink Internet plans is one of the big perks the service offers. CenturyLink Simply Unlimited plans, as well as the CenturyLink Fiber service, allow you to rid yourself of any worry regarding data overage fees or running out of data before the new monthly cycle begins.

Unlimited data is worth up to $50 in value if you look at add-on unlimited data plans from competitors.

3. CenturyLink in-home WiFi

CenturyLink Complete WiFi includes an advanced wireless modem that is able to support delivery of high speeds to multiple devices at the same time. If applicable to your service area, you may as well be fortunate to enjoy WiFi 6 advanced technology with your leased CenturyLink modem. Which means, 3-4 times faster connectivity and higher data capacity compared to WiFi 5. These newer WiFi 6 modems also allow for extended battery life for your in-home devices.

The best part is your CenturyLink home WiFi comes complete with a mobile app which makes it easier to manage your network from anywhere at anytime. Personalize your network via the My CenturyLink app, check signal strength or run speed test. Also, when you subscribe to CenturyLink Complete WiFi you’ll be able to access 24/7 technical support.

While this implies you must pay another $15/mo. on top of your monthly service charge, the perks you get with the leased modem are pretty much worth it.

4. CenturyLink Internet Security & Parental Controls

Speed and pricing are not the only things people worry about when it comes to an internet connection. A secure online experience is a necessity these days. And, you automatically enjoy this without an added cost when you lease a CenturyLink wireless modem. Most CenturyLink modems come with advanced built-in security, so your in-home network is secure as soon as it goes up. This means all devices connected to the CenturyLink wireless modem will be secure from cyber threats.

Plus you don’t need to worry about the content your kids get exposed to as you get also get access to built-in parental controls. Create groups for the kids and their devices, so you can manage better. Restrict their screen time or disconnect their device from WiFi at study time, bedtime, etc.

5. CenturyLink Internet Packages Get You More for Less

As we said, CenturyLink delivers a home phone service across its nationwide footprint. And when you choose to bundle it with the Internet, you save money on the phone service. It is offered at a $10/mo. discount. So, if you run a home office, be sure to consider a CenturyLink Internet package with a phone line. Not only you can get it at a discounted rate, but it comes with unlimited nationwide talk time for the flat monthly rate you pay.

So, if you do need a home backup, bundle the CenturyLink Unlimited Phone with CenturyLink Unlimited Internet or Fiber, whichever is available at your address.

6. No Contracts

When you subscribe to a CenturyLink Internet package or plan, you are not bound by any contracts. You pay on a month-to-month basis, and there is no price hike after 12 months, as is the case with most promotional offers in the market. No contractual obligation implies if you wish to cancel the service for any reason at any time, you do not have to worry about a hefty early cancellation fee.

7. Self Install Option is Available with CenturyLink Internet

CenturyLink pro installation can cost you up to $125. CenturyLink will send in a professional to install the wiring and set the equipment up at your home. But, if you are tech savvy and wish to save on the upfront installation cost, CenturyLink allows you to self-install the setup for its high-speed Internet. The CenturyLink self install kit may cost you a nominal amount, around $15, in some service locations while it is totally free in others.

8. Online CenturyLink Self-Help Tools

As a user of CenturyLink Internet services, you get 24/7 support via an extensive database of online resources. This eliminates the need to contact tech support when a minor problem arises. Instead you can often resolve things with simple troubleshooting tips.

When we look at the cost per Mbps for CenturyLink high-speed DSL plans it is around $1.20. Which is a very competitive rate relative to what you find in the market for the same type of connection. And when it comes to the CenturyLink Fiber Gigabit, it stands unbeatable in terms of the value it delivers. At around 7 cents per Mbps, you are able to enjoy the advantages of a pure Fiber connection. Compared to what you’ll see from others in the market, this is a bargain deal really.

Remember when you compare the value of a CenturyLink Internet plan with competitors’, you must look at the non-promotional prices of any other plans you are considering. Because as we said, CenturyLink does not start you off with a promo price, and there is no price hike after 12 months either.

As is with most ISPs, CenturyLink speeds also vary with your location. And as far as choice of plans, that maybe be limited to a few at any given address. But depending on its network capacity in a vicinity, the provider endeavors to offer the fastest speed. According to the FCC, CenturyLink delivers 25 Mbps downloads across 70% of its nationwide speed footprint. In rural areas, where the provider has a significant presence, you may see the offered speeds are lower than the 25 Mbps FCC high-speed benchmark.

The 15 Mbps -20 Mbps speed tier with the Simply Unlimited Internet service plan is perfect for those that want to stay connected, but do not use internet excessively. The number of devices connected simultaneously maybe restricted with this plan. But you can download regular sized files, music, and videos smoothly. And also work from home or learn online. Everyday tasks such as shopping, and banking can be managed with ease too.

The 40 Mbps -100 Mbps speed tier with the Simply Unlimited Internet service plan is ideal for smaller to mid sized families with standard usage. Stay connected to the web, work from home, or attend online classes. Pay bills and shop online, or indulge in fun activities such as streaming video and playing online games.

Fiber is currently available in about 23% of CenturyLink’s nationwide footprint as per FCC. But where available, it pretty much steals the show. The CenturyLink Fiber Gigabit plan is suitable for bandwidth- hungry households where multiple users and devices must stay connected simultaneously. Competitive online gaming, 4K video streaming, Cloud backups, video conferencing - all bandwidth-extensive tasks find a great match with this CenturyLink plan.

Concluding Words

With CenturyLink all set to expand the reach of its Fiber network, the residential consumer can look forward to a new range of Fiber-based services delivered over a fully digital platform. Even if at this point in time CenturyLink Fiber is not available at your address, the gap is filled in by a consistently-performing CenturyLink high-speed Internet connection. While there are some cities in states where there are many ISPs to fill that gap, just like Phoenix in Arizona, you will never get the same perks with the same price anywhere else! So, if you are residing in one of the CenturyLink service cities listed earlier, speak to a CenturyLink Customer Service representative at 1-855-349-9310.
