I thought some of you might be interested. I just received an offer in the mail for Centurylink cheaper than what I was paying....
$59.95 for Unlimited Calling+High speed internet
Centruylink High Speed Internet
Speeds up to 10Mbps
Long Distance and local
Caller ID and voicemail
Pricelock guaranteed for 5 years
Download a song in the time it takes to read this
Play games in real time.
Just thought this might be something others would be interested in. We never had long distance or extra features and the price was cheaper when we got this deal!

Awesome, I'm calling tomorrow...
FYI, the last time the came up with an offer like this that was less than what I was paying, I asked when they started the promo.
It turned out that they had been running it for 6 months. My comment was "so i've been over paying for 6 months?"
They refunded me the difference in monthly billing retroactive to when the offer was first made public.
If you have a security system, PERS, fire alarm or any other system that dials out-bound, you should be very wary of compatibility and connection methods. POTS, or "plain old telephone service" is going away, but the replacement broadband-based systems when used with legacy voice-grade devices are not always reliable in signal transport. Cable companies and local interconnects are famous (in my industry, security) for incorectly connecting these devices, causing problems, needless expense and scary risks if your fire/CO/alarm system can't call the troops when needed.
There are ways to make them work, or reasons to upgrade your technology. Ask your system provider.

Last September I dated a girl who worked for Century Link and she put me into that deal mentioned...just remember all the taxes that come with it too. Still it is a better deal then I was paying when I had the slowest rate and no LD on my phone line. UL speeds are still a strugle but my slingbox and pandora work just fine over this. I'll be cutting my SP Cable soon as that bill is just far too high for the few channels you get.

Is this offer for POTS?

Is this offer for POTS? It would surprise me if it wasn't. Centruylink provide POTS in this area.
If it is for POTS, then there should be no worries about security systems, FAX machines etc...
