Best CenturyLink Deals Right Now

As of November 2021, CenturyLink’s best deals are offered alongside its fiber plans. For instance, CenturyLink is offering its lowest price ever for fiber internet — $30 per month for the first 12 months for up to 100 Mbps. After 12 months, the price changes to its regular monthly price (currently $50 per month, but is subject to change between now and then). With CenturyLink Fiber, you can also get:

  • A $200 Visa gift card when you sign up for CenturyLink Fiber Gigabit, plus a free modem and free installation
  • Sling TV free for six months
  • EPIX NOW free for 12 months

CenturyLink fiber is available in and around 25 metropolitan areas. If fiber isn’t offered in your area, you can still take advantage of CenturyLink’s 100 Mbps digital subscriber line (DSL) service for $50 per month.

CenturyLink Internet-only Deals

CenturyLink used to offer “Price for Life.” While that’s no longer available, CenturyLink is one of the few providers that has “no-contract” plans, which means you can cancel at any time.

You can also “bring your own equipment” with CenturyLink, which will save you $180 per year. If you sign up for CenturyLink’s gigabit speeds, the modem is free.

Unless you’re experienced with home networking, we recommend using CenturyLink’s modem for a couple of reasons. First, if you experience an outage and need to call customer support, the representative can easily troubleshoot a CenturyLink modem. Secondly, CenturyLink’s modem has “Secure Wi-Fi” features to keep your wireless network safe.

CenturyLink Installation and Equipment Fees

CenturyLink has minimal additional fees. Most DSL competitors still impose data caps, but CenturyLink offers unlimited data for its DSL and fiber plans.

You may incur a modem and installation fee depending on what plan you sign up for and where you live. Expect to pay $15 per month if you use CenturyLink’s modem, or you can purchase it for $200 plus tax. Purchasing it will still give you faster tech service and Secure Wi-Fi, but for less than what you’d pay in monthly equipment fees after 14-15 months of service.

CenturyLink professional installation is $149, which is higher than most, but you can opt for self-installation, which costs $15. Customers in Minnesota, Washington, Oregon, Colorado, Arizona, Pennsylvania, or Florida are not charged the self-installation fee.

CenturyLink Bundle Deals

Internet + Phone $85 per month (varies)
  • Up to gigabit speeds
  • Unlimited local and long-distance calling

Some internet service providers, like AT&T or Xfinity, have their own TV services. CenturyLink takes a different approach, allowing you to add DIRECTV, DISH, or streaming television options like DIRECTV Stream directly to your CenturyLink account. You don’t save a ton of money doing this (on average, $20 to $40 per year), but you do get the advantage of having all services on a single CenturyLink bill.

Currently, CenturyLink is offering new Fiber Gigabit customers a free Sling TV account and one free AirTV Mini streaming device for six months. Sling TV is one of the most popular livestreaming TV services — consider this deal an extended free trial. Customers who sign up online for any plan with up to 20 Mbps or higher can qualify for a free 12-month subscription to EPIX NOW. Keep in mind, both of these deals are only available in certain locations.
