CenturyLink offers DSL and fiber plans with download speeds ranging between 100-940 Mbps. It’s one of the leading DSL providers in the U.S. and ranks among the top five fiber internet providers.
Windstream’s selection of internet plans includes DSL, fixed wireless, cable, and fiber. Download speeds range between 50 Mbps to 1 Gbps, with the cheapest plan costing $39.99 per month for either fixed wireless or cable internet at download speeds of up to 400 Mbps.
Both providers have partnerships with DIRECTV, but CenturyLink advertises the TV service as a package rather than a “bundle.” When it comes to a diverse range of internet plans, Windstream takes the lead.
