Good "I am still trying to decide if there are any good thing about Century Link DSL"
- Location: Spokane,Spokane,WA
- Cost: $35 per month (6 month contract)
Bad "Main office is over 4,000 feet away, connections are not consistant, prices are a scam...jumping way up after promo ends."
Overall "By a satelite, launch it into space. Put dish up & install fiber optics. If you want the job done right...doit yourself!"

Century Link has a marketing skeem that pushes BS to the limits. I can honestly say that about 15% of what they told me was true. I warn everyone out there if you decide to hire Century Link for your ISP, tape record the conversation. You will need to remind them of what they sold you and what you were given.
I ordered 40/20, first modem was sent wrong by them. We sent back and waited for second modem. After receiving and installing second modem, Up and down speed was 7/.5. CL tech diagnostic the modem and found it was garbage and sent out a third modem. After installing the speed increased to about 10/1. I called CL and had them send out an installer. This guy was great and honest too. He checked everything and fixed the line from the pole to house and gave me a bunch of wire to rewire from outside house to computer room. He did meter checks at all locations and ran a clean line to our main phone box so I can run a connection from that to room. He increase speed to 24/4 which was very nice to have after all the crap so far. He explained why I will never get 40/20 and not to purchase that speed rate because it will never be achieved from our location. He advised us to downgrade the pricey 40/20 to a little lower speed so we would not keep having problems with consistantancy and save us cash too. There are still some honest folks out there, this installer was knowledgible, honest and I hope if I need his expertise again, they send him out.
I am pretty sure I will go back to Comcast in the future since I feel they don't stick it in you as far as Century Link does. 8^O
