- "Slow upload speed, makes you subscribe to the highest tier for a subpar upload (5m)"
- "Good value reliable service IF you're in a Legacy Qwest area. Can't speak for anywhere else."

Value for money:
(ratings above consensus)
I needed a backup connection and some extra bandwith to supplment my Comcast Buisness Cable connection.
CenturyLink is my only other choice save for a expensive T1 from Intgera or Exede/DishNET.
I called CenturyLink and they offered a 20/.896 for $60~ a month after promotions expire. No contract. I took that offer. They UPS'd me a ActionTec C1000A modem, that I have had clients that had awesome luck with.
The installer was great, did a speedtest for me. Plugged my modem right into the NID, set up my rules for the internal Firewall and connected it to my FireBox as my failover connection and to one on my servers for hosting.
Line has been reliable as hell for the two weeks I have had it. I can sit there and top it out and it will not complain or slow, even in peak times! Can't say so much for my Comcast line.
My only gripe was the slow upload in relation to the download. I've foind .896 is not cutting it at all for my hosting needs. Lucky for me I'm on VDSL2 and close enough to the CO to get the 40/5 plan. Getting someone to admit this was possible was tough though.
I will post a speedtest later this evening.
I know I have not posted the speedtest yet, I've been quite busy. I did want to update that century link is refusing to sell me the faster service and getting set up for the myaccount online was very tough, I was not given the access code and it took 5 calls to get it. Other than that service has been rock solid.
