Unfortunately, area availability limits the plans you can purchase. Now’s a good time to see what speeds CenturyLink offers at your address.
If you clicked that link, you might already be discovering that drastically different speeds within the same area are sort of a CenturyLink trademark. Someone you know may have fiber, but your house qualifies for “speeds” of (wait for it) up to 1.5 Mbps through CenturyLink. Pretty pitiful, huh?
You may want to consider that before signing up. If your household guzzles bandwidth with multiple simultaneous streams, online gaming, and dropping bazillions of dank memes, you need a speedy connection.
Fiber, at up to 940 Mbps, will let you suck down all kinds of data. It’ll also (unlike cable and DSL connections) give you upload speeds to match. (Remember, however, that fiber internet-only doesn’t qualify for Price for Life—but it does if you bundle with phone service.)
If you can’t get fiber, you can still make it rain memes with most of CenturyLink’s DSL speeds. A family of four, with their own phones and other devices, can do a lot with 20–100 Mbps. A couple, or two roommates, can make 15–20 Mbps work pretty well.
But if you live in an area where Centurylink offers only up to 1.5 Mbps? That’s only worth $49 a month if you live on a mountaintop and have no other choices.
All plans come with a 1 TB data allowance, which is more than most of us will need.
