CenturyLink internet speeds

CenturyLink sells plans with speeds of up to 940Mbps, but many customers get slower speeds than that, according to data from our speed test. The provider’s DSL service can only top out at 100Mbps, and availability for fiber is limited. That said, you can still get a fast and reliable internet connection from CenturyLink in many areas.

Why choose CenturyLink for internet service?

You get a straight deal from CenturyLink—no need to worry about misleading promotions or sky-high price hikes here. Get the fiber internet plan for all the speed you need to stream, game, download, and Zoom on a multitude of devices. The DSL plan has more modest speeds, but it gives you unlimited data, so that’s a plus, especially if you’re in a rural area with limited Wi-Fi options.

How CenturyLink compares to the competition

CenturyLink’s fiber internet plans beats out most cable providers like Cox, Spectrum, and Xfinity because it gives you faster speeds at a cheaper price. It also comes with unlimited data and no annual contract, which you don’t always get from a cable internet provider. However, CenturyLink’s DSL deal doesn’t quite compare to Cox and Xfinity’s budget plans, which cost less (at least in the first 12 months) and come with faster speeds.

AT&T is CenturyLink’s main fiber competitor. It has a wider range of fiber plans that all come at decent prices. But CenturyLink’s gigabit plan is $10 cheaper per month than AT&T’s, so we like CenturyLink more (although both are solid).
