So I moved into a new apartment and needed internet. The town we live in is small so there weren’t very many options since not a lot of Internet companies have their cables in all areas of the city. One of the choices were Century link and we decided to settle for them because they had a $34.95 a month plan for 12 mbps (which is still crap) and it didn’t have a usage limit. After talking to a representative on the phone I made it very clear that I didn’t want to set up an Internet plan until I spoke to my wife about it first. I just wanted information. So the overenthusiastic representative (who the company seems to emphasize when enrolling people and take their money) set up an account but failed to tell me he set up a time for a tech to come even though I didn’t commit. So after hanging up with him and speaking to my wife we officially agreed to go with century link. So we called them and apparently they told us that we were already set up with an account and had a date to have a technician come. The fun stuff starts when the time comes for the technician to show up and they lied about him showing up on the day that he was supposed to show up. So after fighting tooth and nail to get him to show up when they said he was going to show up The technician arrives and tells us that we can’t have 12 mbps, only 7.... and then he proceeded to install it anyway even though we signed a contract for 12 Mb per second. And so we called Century link and they said that we’re still gonna have to pay the same price for the 12 Mb per second even though they swindled us. So now we are stuck with crappy Internet over paying for it while century link costumer service all of a sudden becomes useless and rude

I moved and waited a whole week for someone to install a modem, after they never showed up I called again and they said the order was put in the computer for a whole month away. So I asked for them to just send it and i would install it myslef, and a whole two weeks went by when they said it would take 2-3 days. DONT GO WITH CENTURY LINK.
None!

This is horrible... I usually don't write reviews but I am sooo fed up with these people.. was scheduled for service upgrade for 9/1 between 12 and 5.. I waited till 2 and well THEY never showed up so I called and they stated they cancelled it and rescheduled for the following week.. never got a phone call left work early to be home for their convinient time frame.. AND THEN TO BE RESCHEDULED again from the 8th to the 15th still. I even called on wed the 13th to confirm the spot for Friday the 15th and was reassured that it was scheduled and they would be there this time.. NO call and NO show... AGAIN..So here we are the 15th and never showed was told the techs are on OT and had to reschedule for the 21st.. obviously I don't work so I can sit around all day for them to come.. told them I have a job and I can't keep leaving half days for them to NOT show up.. so now they state the next available will be Oct 6th on a Friday so I can take another half day off work to hopefully not be cancelled again.. and that was from a supervisor... Obviously they don't have the understanding that we as the consumers provide them with their paycheck??? And this hasn't happened just once.. this is the 5th time this has happened 3 times in 2 weeks with them and it started at the beginning with instillation when they never showed or called.. I am over this company but when you live on a farm out in the country and they are the only provider that comes out here.. they have you by the balls and they know it so they can say and treat you how ever they want bc they know in this day and age with children in high school they know you need the convenience of internet.

I was to receive my modem and service on 9/6/17. I called them a day before to verify that that would be the day I would receive everything. I was told that service would be started that day and that the modem was out for delivery with UPS. On September 7th I spent over 2 hours trying to set up the service. I was having no luck so I decided to call CenturyLink to get some help. I was told that I was set up for service on the 7th instead of the 6th. I told them that I had two letters stating it was to be the 6th and that I took the day off on the 7th to set everything up. They patched me through to the call center to see if the service tech could put me on the list to be done next. She also said that someone contacted me and negotiated the new date of September 7th. I told her that nobody called and I didn't appreciate the fact that they lied. The only way for them to contact me was through my cell phone therefore I checked my cell phone to make sure that I did not receive a call from them and I did not. She said the tech should call me around 10 minutes later to talk to me and see if he could get to me sooner. It has now been over an hour and I have not heard from anybody. Is this what I'm going to be dealing with with CenturyLink?
Only high speed for rural
Too many to mention , plus they would not let me talk to a supervisor.
No

Ok so when we received our Internet receiver I immediately called customer service to self program our wifi. We had two phone conversations on different occasions and both times they were not able to help use set up our box. So we then called them a third time to have them send out a tech. Mind you my husband and I are busy working full time everyday so we kindly asked the scheduler to put in a not for the tech to come to our place at 4:30 PM or after and to also give us a call when minutes away. We missed our first appt because the tech came at 2:30 instead when we clearly stated that no one was going to be home. We called customer service and tried setting up a second appt and we asked what the time range was that the tech typically shows up. The lady told me between 2:30-6:30pm so I'm like ok cool can you please put in another note stating what the previous note said. Unfortunately we missed our second appt as well. By this point my husband and I are livid. Because not only did we miss two appts they sent us two bills on top of that. Silly of us we have them a third try and the day I made this appt I left work an hour early to just be at home for the tech that never showed up and never called. I called the tech directly two hours later and said "Hey, we had an appt today, did anyone ever show up." And he promptly said no one came to our address at all and there was no phone call made to my husband or myself. Their customer service is terrible and we instantly sent the wifi receiver back to them and "cancelled" the service we technically never had. First time customers with Century Link and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Cheap
Poor customer service, wifi receivers that don't work on most phone jacks, tech services close down early, and terrible business.
No

Worst service ever. Didn't even connect internet and decided to cancel, had to pay over 100 dollars for no service connection. Basically paid 100 dollars for them to ship me a box I didn't use. Don't ever sign up with them! Total rip off! ZERO stars if I could.

This is by far the most awful service I have ever had. We apparently only get 12mbps in our area so we can't go any faster then that when promised fast connection. I go to check my speed and apparently it is only going over a little over 4 mbps when a speed test is done and that's if it even goes up to that. Only can slightly work on device. All I ever see is buffering or loading......... So angry because we have multiple devices and constantly have to tell the kids and husband to turn their stuff of just so mine can function right. Don't ever go with them I am paying over 60 bucks a months for the worst service I could ever get. Which sadly is one of the only ones out in my area I can even afford. Do yourself a favor save yourself the money and don't go with them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to give a star just to rate but it is clearly a zero stars on everything. I almost feel like suing.
None

No

Absolutely atrocious customer support, the services are crap, and overly expensive. Even after canceling with them has been a nightmare. Stay, far, far, far, away. 1 star is lowest I could go cause 0 is not available.

I am SO SO disappointed in CENTURY LINK service and marketing. I was lied to, clearly lied to several times they clearly and emphatically said they were installing fiber optics internet and that is not what they were installing, it was DSL. This is just a blatant lie, it was not a misunderstanding it was a down right lie. SHAME on CENTURY LINK. I have not EVER trolled anyone or company but I will post this at ever site Century Link is listed on, so no one else is taking advantage of !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Skinny

Like a traditional landline, CenturyLink’s phones still stay functional during a power outage. If the power goes out while your cell phone is almost out of battery life, you can rest assured knowing that CenturyLink will still let you make the important phone calls that you need to make.

International calling plans are also offered by CenturyLink, with over 100 countries to choose from for unlimited calling. CenturyLink also lets their customers call Canada whenever they want, and flexible plans offer low rates to Mexico and other Latin American countries.

CenturyLink also offers mobile phone plans that are powered by Verizon. Make calls on the go without fearing lost calls or choppy connections. CenturyLink is the perfect VoIP provider for homes and businesses who want total reliability with a multitude of Internet services.

Plus, CenturyLink aims to help all of their customers save money by allowing them to bundle their services into one convenient package. Their phone services boast clear and reliable connections with no dropped calls. They offer VoIP services with the same convenience and advantages of a landline with the features and pricing of VoIP service, to give out the best of both worlds.
