Do you want only internet service? With CenturyLink Fiber Internet, you get download and upload speeds of up to 940 Mbps. That’s a big deal, because fiber optic internet is the fastest internet connection you can currently get (until we’re all hard-wired into the hive mind).
We’d recommend CenturyLink Fiber Internet’s 940 Mbps plan if it’s available in your area. You’ll get excellent internet performance, and at $65.00 a month, that’s cheaper than other fiber internet providers like Verizon ($79.99/mo.) and Optimum ($69.99/mo.) CenturyLink also offers a cheaper 100 Mbps fiber internet plan, but the plan’s $15.00 monthly modem fee makes it much less of a deal compared to the 940 Mbps plan.
Unfortunately, area availability limits the CenturyLink plans you can purchase. If you can’t get CenturyLink Fiber Internet at your address, your only other CenturyLink internet option will be the ISP’s Simply Unlimited Internet DSL plan.
Drastically different speeds within the same area are sort of a DSL internet trademark, and CenturyLink’s Simply Unlimited Internet is no exception. On the DSL internet plan, you’ll have one $50.00 per month option that comes with the fastest download speed (up to 100 Mbps) available at your address.
A couple or a small family that occasionally watches Netflix and Hulu shows can make 80–100 Mbps work pretty well. But if your address gets a download speed of less than 40 Mbps, you’ll be overpaying for slow internet and you’ll be better off looking at competing cable internet providers.
