Centurylink Prism has a growing fiber internet network that covers some of northern Boise, including Highlands, Northern Gulch, and Boise Heights. Their fiber network has not extended south of these points, although the network does expand northward of Boise.

CenturyLink makes DSL available to all of Boise, from western neighborhoods like Cloverdale and West Valley to eastern neighborhoods like Harris Ranch and Warm Springs Mesa.

Frontier Communications is a major internet provider in northern Boise, covering certain neighborhoods like Downtown, North End, Boise Heights, Veterans Park, and Sunset.

The coverage area for CTC internet is somewhat similar, reaching a handful of northwestern Boise neighborhoods. Neighborhoods within the service area include Central Rim, Winstead Park, Collister, and Quail Ridge.

Integra Telecom boasts an expansive service area that stretches through all of Boise and into neighboring communities. Covered northern neighborhoods include Collister, Stewart Gulch, and Veterans Park. Coverage stretches south to Southeast Boise, Riverland East, and Sunrise Rim.

The worst internet, lies about speed and then when I tried to cancel they will not let you cancel online for issues of speed but I could cancel bc I was “moving” this obviously to make it harder to cancel service. Even when I try to call every time it said it was after hours even though it was 4pm. I would never use century link, I would rather use my cell phone hot spot.

After being a customer for 23 years, we moved houses and upgraded our service. Service went out within weeks and they refused to send a repair technician for over a week, so we cancelled. Over an hour on the phone, five different people, none could help. Extremely frustrating, never use them again!

Great price, good enough speed. Wish I didn't have to call in every year to pretend cancel in order to renew my promotion pricing.

WORST internet provider I have EVER been with! They treat their customers so poorly and blame the customer for something not working out when it is CLEARLY CenturyLink who is at fault. Internet speed is slower than molasses; all my devices lose internet at least twice a week; and the reps are extremely unpleasant. If I could give 0 stars I would. Terrible service. Don't do it

Service stopped 12/27 in early morning hours and did not resume till next day. I tried to call 10 times to report and after going through their automated system it would hang up on me. I hope to see one of their trucks when I have a loaded firearm.
