What I don't get is Centurylink has some areas that already have fiber to the home. Why not offer 1 GB service to them as part of the pilot? Instead they limit fiber technology to fit legacy plans. -- Admin Tips »www.serverninjas.com
I'm actually basically getting what I'm paying for, and that's the fastest speed they offer in my area. Satellite is my only other option for internet at my house. The cable company (Charter) doesn't have any lines out to my neighborhood. Yes, I'm in the country.
I have a brand new house and I watched them bury the line from the pole to my house, and it was a fiber line. No clue what's coming up to the pole. That part was already buried before they started building my house.
Century Link is awful, some people manage to get decent but it's mostly if you live in a bigger city. My upload speed is 32kbs at maximum if I don't browse any other pages at the same time. Download is capped around 200kbs on a good day. Here's mine when I go through speedtest but it's actually much slower than this lets on,
I wouldn't even recommend them based on customer service either, it's worse. I hate calling them.
