CenturyLink: Comparing Provider Plans


Pros

  • Locked-in pricing
  • Streaming-capable download speed
  • Dedicated, stable connection compared to cable

Cons

  • High price for speed range
  • Reduced upload speeds
  • Data use limits

CenturyLink has incredible deals for those on a budget — which includes parents. You won’t find too many monthly promotions from CenturyLink, as their best deals are offered year-round. Some of CenturyLink’s best offers are:

  • Free Month of Bark: Bark is a parental control software that allows parents to monitor their children’s online usage on computers, smartphones, and tablets.
  • Secure WiFi: CenturyLink’s Secure Wi-Fi offers protection from cyber threats for not only your home network, but your smart home devices and computers.

CenturyLink’s deals vary by plan. Keep the following tips in mind when comparing CenturyLink internet deals:

  1. Faster speeds cost more. This is true for all providers. Budget-conscious users may be more fond of the up to 100 Mbps plan.
  2. You can save by using your own equipment. While you will miss out on CenturyLink’s Secure Wi-Fi service, you can save $15 a month by using your own modem and router.
  3. Bundle services. CenturyLink has an agreement with DIRECTV to offer high-quality television programming as part of their bundle deals. If you’re interested in adding TV service to your plan, you can often save a large amount of money by bundling DIRECTV with your internet when compared to purchasing the services separately.

CenturyLink Internet-only Deals

Currently, the Fiber Gigabit plan is the best deal CenturyLink offers — CenturyLink is offering a free modem and free professional installation with online orders. While you’re not required to lease a CenturyLink modem, its perks make it worth it for some. The Secure Wi-Fi feature offered with CenturyLink modems combines cybersecurity, privacy protection, and parental controls in one service that’s easy to monitor and control via the My CenturyLink app. The current promotion for the Fiber Gigabit plan will save you $180 (since CenturyLink’s equipment lease fee is $15 a month) and up to $125 on the installation fee.

CenturyLink Bundle Deals

Plan Name Monthly Price (savings) Deal
Internet + Phone $85 per month (varies)
  • Guarantees price for gigabit speeds
  • Unlimited local and long-distance calling
Internet + DIRECTV Varies
  • Includes NBA League Pass and NFL Sunday Ticket for Choice package or higher
  • Regional sports networks included (Choice package or higher)
  • Free Genie HD DVR
Internet + DISH Varies
  • Two-year price lock
  • Discounts available for military, first responders, health- care professionals, and senior citizens
  • Includes free professional installation

Bundling normally saves customers $20-$40 a month during the first year or two. Unfortunately, CenturyLink does not have many bundles of its own. You can bundle internet with your home phone; however, it’s unclear how much you’re saving, if any at all. With the gigabit plan included, you’ll pay $20 for your home phone, which is worth it if you make international calls often or want a second phone number.

Those in search of internet and TV bundles can still sign up for CenturyLink, but these types of bundles include third parties, as CenturyLink no longer offers its own TV service. CenturyLink directly partners with DIRECTV allowing you to receive one bill (from CenturyLink) for both services, but you won’t see a bundling discount on your bill. CenturyLink customers miss out on internet and TV bundle discounts. Still, CenturyLink encourages residents to bundle their internet with live TV from DISH and AT&T TV, and streaming service providers including fuboTV, YouTubeTV, Philo, and more.
