Centurylink Dry DSL

Post by nnn » Tue Sep 07, 2010 6:03 pm

I called centurylink today to have them separate out my dsl from my phone so I could port over my number. They told me that I needed to pay about $15 for the line to my house plus another $35 or so for my DSL. So, about $50 total (This is the cost after the 1 year promotional pricing). The problem is I could get phone/dsl from them for about the same price. which just about make ooma a wash. I had bout ooma planning on paying just the $35 and not having a phone bill. Does anyone have centurylink stand alone dsl and what is your price for it.

Do you have cable option? That's steep for DSL.

I think Centurylink is a reseller. All DSL service is provide by the babies Bell, now only a few remained: ATT, Verizon, etc.

I would check with the big guys first (ATT, Verizon) or the DSL reports site

CenturyLink is not a reseller, it is an ILEC (incumbent local exchange carrier). The current corporate structure is the result of CenturyTel's acquisition of Embarq Corporation ("EMBARQ"). As a result of this acquisition, the combined company is the largest independent telecommunications provider and the fourth largest telecommunications provider in the United States based on access lines - serving 33 states with 7.5 million access lines, 2.1 million broadband customers, 450,000 video subscribers and a nearly 17,000-mile core fiber network.
