Overall "VERY slow speeds, and outrageous prices."

Value for money:
(ratings match consensus)
I have Centurylink DSL (formerly Qwest) and unlimited nationwide calling, and it costs (after taxes) exactly $98.06 a month. The main problem I have with this ISP is that only 1.5Mbps is available where I live, because they don't want to bother upgrading any of their 90's era-equipment installed by US West and/or install a remote DSLAM.
UPDATE: Still no upgrades planned, according to Doug Morgan from TalkToUs@CenturyLink.com, so I will be switching to 15Mbps Wave Broadband for faster speeds and TV, while paying the same amount of money. (105.00-month for phone, internet, and basic HDTV)
After complaining to Centurylink for my internet repeatedly dropping out every 10 minutes a few months ago (fixed now), he tried to sell me DirecTV -_-
I switched to cable internet, and it's WAYYYYY better. Phone quality is better, internet is 13 times faster, with less taxes and hidden fees.
Centurylink wanted to make it as hard as possible to cancel, so we had to sit on the phone for 40 minutes with them (35 minutes on hold). I was DONE with them as soon as they raised there rates, AGAIN, adding another fee, called "Universal service fund", which is supposedly to "improve their infrastructure", while I haven't seen them doing anything but getting worse. It's another hidden fee allowed by the FCC for corporations to make more profit. I'm glad I got rid of them.
