Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Boulder

Satisfied customer

We've been Centurylink customers for years. Service has been great after recently upgrading but we had occasional outages on the previous slower plan (and modem). We had been on a 60mbps speed on a price for life deal but saw that they were offering 100mbps only for new customers at a lower price than what I was getting. I called a regular service rep hoping to upgrade and they said they couldn't offer me the new customer deal. I then read a blog that recommended asking for the "Loyalty Department". I asked for them the second time I called a different regular rep and they transferred while saying there would be "no promises". The "Loyalty Department" rep was super-nice and told us she could switch us to the new customer plan AND throw in the new modem needed at no charge since our current plan had the same setup where we owned it and didn't make monthly payments on it. It was the best phone customer service experience I've ever had! Install occurred on the planned day a few days later. The tech was professional and knew what was needed (including working on lines blocks from our home and even in the neighbor's back yard). An hour later and we were up and running. The new Zyxel c3000z modem works great and I decided to ditch a Netgear wifi router that I had up with our older Actiontec C1000A modem and just use the modem's built-in wifi. It's newer than our old router. I have a wifi extender that helps reach our back deck and yard. Speeds are consistently in the 90mbs though I would like faster upload speeds than the 10mbps that's offered. But overall, I am really satisfied with Centurylink and recommend them highly.

Fast!!! Reliable!!! Inexpensive!!!

I got this 1Gbps fiber service in Nov 2019 in Boulder CO, it is now June 2020, and I have to say, it is a game-changer! Supremely fast. The techs I had did a very good job, all-around at install. The price is $65 a month after ongoing $20 discount no fees etc. If you can get this service you absolutely should! You won't regret it! We now stream everything, TV, music, YouTube, Netflix, HBO we have never come close to tapping the link. The service has not been down either since installation. Very reliable.
