As 5G wireless home internet gets closer CenturyLink promises a major investment in the speeds of their network. By the end of 2017 CenturyLink plans to increase the speed of their network to 3 million customers.
“CenturyLink is committed to improving the lives of our customers by connecting them to the power of the digital world; that’s why we’re investing in new broadband technology and offering customers a fair and straightforward monthly rate for high-speed internet service,” said Maxine Moreau, CenturyLink president of consumer markets. “Our deployment of faster broadband speeds in big cities as well as small towns helps CenturyLink connect its customers to the things that matter most to them.”
CenturyLink says they have already increased the speeds of more than 1 million homes and small business this year. CenturyLink says they have expanded their broadband network into many rural communities this year, providing speeds of at least 10 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload in locations identified as eligible for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)’s Connect America Fund (CAF).
According to statment from CenturyLink “Half of those homes and businesses will now have access to speeds up to 100 Mbps and higher.” Cord Cutters News has seen this change at our office. Recently CenturyLink raised their max speed from 40 Mbps down to 1 Gbps down in our area.
