CenturyLink has announced the launch of 1 Gbps Internet speeds in several Seattle markets as well as 15 other select cities across the US including Denver, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Phoenix, and Portland. In Seattle, the upgraded service has already started launching in Ballard, West Seattle, the Central District and Beacon Hill, and for businesses throughout the Puget Sound area.
The symmetrical 1 Gbps upstream/downstream broadband is possible through the company’s upgraded fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) network. The 1 Gbps service is launching in a mix of residential and businesses locations (see list below), so contact CenturyLink to see if your location will get the upgrade. Residential customers can get 1 Gbps internet for $79.95 if bundled with additional CenturyLink services that qualify.
“In a city that boasts some of the world’s leading technology providers, it’s critical that residents and businesses have leading technology available to them,” said Sue Anderson, CenturyLink general manager/vice president for Seattle.
