I have had CenturyLink for many years now and it has been declining each year for me. The internet has been getting poorer by the week. I have issues working at home when noone else is home. When we stream, the problems are endless. Their customer service just passes you around like a hot potato or when they do connect you with another representative, they don't let the new representative know what the situation is and I have to explain it every time I'm transferred. After spending hours on the phone with them, the internet is still slow and now my phone doesn't work. Called the next morning and SURPRISE we have to call back in an hour cause they are doing maintenance. My advice - DO NOT use this company unless you want the slow internet and incompetent tech support that gives you the run around. Spectrum, here I come!
