CenturyLink Information

With its headquarters based out of Monroe, Louisiana, CenturyLink provides Internet and phone services to customers in 36 different states. CenturyLink is the 3rd largest telecommunications business in the United States, providing telecommunication services to the Government, businesses, and residents throughout the country. CenturyLink was founded in 1930 when William Clarke and his wife, Marie Williams bought Oak Ridge Telephone Company. In 1968, Clarke incorporated the company under the name Central Telephone and Electronics. Over several decades, they had acquired multiple regional providers and expanded their network. They became known as CenturyLink in 2009 and have continued to provide customers with reliable DSL service.

CenturyLink Internet Facts

  • Shortly after incorporation in 1968, CenturyLink, initially known as Oak Ridge Telephone Company, was renamed Century Telephone Enterprises Inc. in 1971.
  • After acquiring Embarq in 2008 for $11.6 billion, CenturyTel changed its name to CenturyLink.
  • In 2010 CenturyLink acquired Qwest essentially paving the way for CenturyLink to become the 3rd largest telecommunications company in the United States.
  • Currently, bundle discounts are available by combing your CenturyLink Internet service with DirecTV's television service.
  • All internet plans come with a 30-day money back guarantee, 24/7 technical support, and Norton security.

Type of Internet Service?

CenturyLink gives customers a DSL connection that is delivered through your existing telephone line. All you have to do is connect a modem from your home phone to your computer so that signals are able to travel across the phone wire.

What are CenturyLink's Upload and Download Speeds?

CenturyLink offers customers a wide range of speed, from 12 Mbps to 1 Gbps. Their regular plans support everything from casual browsing to sending emails. Their fiber optic plans are able to support up to 1 Gbps of speed. With those speeds, you are free to surf the internet and stream videos without lag time.

How much data do I get with CenturyLink?

CenturyLink does have data caps for their plans. If you have a plan with less than 7 Mbps of download speed, they provide you with 300 GB of data. If you have a plan that is greater than 7 Mbps down, you have access to 600 GB of data. If you purchase their plan with 1 Gbps of speed, you are free to browse the internet without any restrictions. For any overages, CenturyLink will bill you an additional $10 for every 50 GBs over your plan. In order to save data, consider streaming videos in standard definition. According to CenturyLink, 6 hours of HD (High Definition) streaming daily takes up approximately 540 GB of data per month, but streaming the same amount in SD (Standard Definition) only takes up 126 GB per month. With CenturyLink's data caps, you should be able to maintain normal web browsing activities with some downloading and streaming.

How much does CenturyLink cost?

CenturyLink's Pure Broadband high speed internet plan has a promotional price of $29.95/mo for 12 months. If you choose to lock in a two year contract, the same internet package would be $34.95/mo for those 2 years.

What Hardware do I need with CenturyLink?

CenturyLink customers that have purchased or leased a modem through CenturyLink get the following equipment at the time of installation: a modem and power adapter, a green telephone cord, a yellow ethernet cable, DSL filters, and an installation guide if you are setting it up yourself.


Earlier in January 2017, CenturyLink announced its plans to acquire SEAL Consulting Inc., which is a leading provider in technology solutions. This move foreshadows future plans to expand into the IT and consulting space.
