Not available in my area yet but thanks for posting.

Does anyone know if Century Link has data caps? I'm currently with Cox and paying $100/mo for their highest tier due to data caps of lower tiers.

I'd love to save money when this service is available to me.

If they do they are not published and i have never hit them. I'm sure i've had a 500-1000GB month before.

The CenturyLink Excessive Use Policy (EUP) uses a 1.0 terabyte (TB) monthly data usage limit. This limit applies to all uploaded and downloaded data for all residential CenturyLink High Speed Internet (HSI) customers except for those excluded below. Of the millions of CenturyLink HSI customers, very small fractions exceed the data usage limit provided with their monthly HSI plan.

CenturyLink is committed to providing an optimal Internet experience for every customer we serve. It is for this reason that CenturyLink places data usage limits on residential plans. The data usage limit applies to residential HSI. It does not apply to business-class HSI. Residential 1 Gbps plans are also not subject to data usage limits. The HSI and video traffic of Prism® TV service customers is also not subject to the CenturyLink EUP. Any residential customer receiving discounted HSI service under a program to promote broadband adoption in low-income households is also not subject to the data usage limit.

CenturyLink does not currently charge customers a fee for excessive data usage. CenturyLink will weigh variables such as network health, congestion, and the availability of customer usage data as factors when enforcing this policy. Customers who have exceeded their monthly data usage limit and are subject to EUP enforcement will be notified by CenturyLink via web notification and/or written communication.

Customers who are subject to EUP enforcement are given options to reduce their usage, subscribe to a higher-speed residential HSI plan, or migrate to an alternate business-class HSI service. Our EUP is application neutral; it only considers the total usage (bytes transferred) over a defined period of time independent of protocols, applications, or the content that is generating the excessive usage.

Cox announced recently that they will charge $10 for 50GB of additional data. They also lowered the cap for higher tier plans to 1TB as well. I remember the 150+Mbps plans have 2TB a few months ago.

Quick question regarding speeds:

Hypothetically speaking, if someone is signed up for 40 Mbps and only is able to hit 20 Mbps average for everyday use...would signing up for a faster (in this case 120Mbps) plan make a different if they are still using the same lines or are the actual speeds based on location so even if I signed up for 120Mbps I would still get roughly 20Mbps?

What about in reverse? If I were to go from 40Mbps to 20Mbps would I hypothetically still get the same speed as I did with 40Mbps since I was already maxing out at 20?

I've found I usually get 1/2-3/4 of the advertised speeds depending on time of day etc on any type of plan I get. I've called and complained before about 1/2 and they say it's within their acceptable limits of the plan.

If you think you have an appropriate modem/router situation, and if you receive slow speeds even with no one is browsing (test early morning), there may be an issue with your wires coming from the street. Even if your home is new, sometimes, the connection just degrades. TWC rewired for me and problem solved.

Regarding the first part if you are paying for or signed up for 40 Mbps then you should be getting it from the ISP and if you are not getting those speed then get in touch with them with a complain that you are not getting the correct speed.

Yes the upgraded speed would be dependent if the ISP can provide 120 Mbps or higher in that particular area. If it is available then you can signup and should receive the speed for which you signed up for.

There can be slight variations in the speed but you should receive the speed that you have signed up for otherwise you should take it with the concerned ISP.

No if you downgrade your speed from 40 Mbps to 20 Mbps then you will receive 20 Mbps unless someone forgets to downgrade your speed for which you should be happy and don't complain to the ISP that you are getting the higher speed without paying for it.

You'd hit 1TB in no time if you watch Live Television on Hulu and Netflix.

CenturyLink is the absolute worst company to deal with. Customer and tech service is in the Philippines and totally useless. They lie about available speeds they cannot supply so you sign up. They sold me 40mbps service and I could barely get 10. The kicker is they are telling people they can get up to 100mbps service where they can barely supply 20. My upload was supposed to be 4 and I got less than one. They want you to do auto pay and when you quit they keep charging you. Worst company in the industry. I read someplace they were getting suited for shady practices.

I've got Comcast at the moment, used to have CenturyLink's 40Mbps service and it was WAYYY better than anything of equivalence on the Comcast side. Way more stable, faster download speeds (I got about 95% or more of my rated speed at the time), more consistency, just all around better.

Unfortunately they only have the 1.5Mbps DSL service where I live now so not really an option. Really wish I had something else available to me (well, aside from satellite internet)

Do a search for CenturyLink service complaints and see you are most likely one of the few happy customers as they have lawsuits against them. Here in AZ. they are horrible. You were lucky.
