  • WORSE SPEED / WORSE SERVICE EVER



    SORRY SERVICE FROM CENTURYLINK INTERNET SERVICE!!!! Any techies out there know what is going on with them???? A couple a months ago, my service started getting SOOOO SLOOOW (2mbps) that I called them about it. They said that was the speedy I was paying for!?!?!?!? So I had to increase my speed (for $40 more) to 8mbps!!!! Well in the last 2 weeks (after about 2pm for the rest of the night!) my speed has DROPPED AGAIN, to 3mbps for downloads, and 1 mbps for uploads! When I called them last night, the agent tried to get me to log on to their speedy check page....and when it was taking tooooo... More...

  • Bad customer service



    I went with century link because I previously had comcast and they are awful. I thought I would get better service! Ha ha. What a joke. Century link customer service people do not know what they are doing. I had to call so many times in the two months I have had them! It's ridiculous. I was trying to get my service turned on in my new place. It took five calls, one call lasted two and a half hours, talking with five different people, two were supervisors, to get it taken care of. Yesterday I had to call because my signal was out. The guy tells me I have to call direct tv. I... More...

  • First Month And displeased



    i recieved my first bill from centurylink today and it was almost double my quoted price. Originally they had me also signed up for a phone line without my consent. I only found this out when they thanked me for my "valued" internet and phone service. any how they told me that they would remove it but I would have to call the next day for the correct pricing to get added. so my service continued with constant connectivity issues. I recieved my bill of course being quoted 30 dollars a month I was shocked to see the 140 bill. I of couse expected it to be a little higher because of... More...

  • No proof of a Verbal Contract



    We cancelled our Centurylink service and were told that we were obligated under a verbal contract and would incur a early termination fee. We told CL that we never were informed of such a contact and never gave consent, and requested an audio of the agreement they claim. They told us we would have to file a supboena for the audio and would have to pay the fee especially if we were to leave for a competitor. Their service is poor- computers are slow and can't even watch netflix without constant frustration. We purposefully chose CL because they did not state that there was a... More...

  • Centurylink - Horrible service



    Wow, what a wonderful world we live in today! High speed internet. Satellite tv in every home. Who could ask for more? I can! I find it curious that one of the world's largest internet providers can't manage the simple task of running their website correctly. It seems so strange to me that they can provide internet service to millions of people but the idea of actually employing someone who has half a brain in their head to maintain their own website never crossed their minds. I have been with Centurylink now for almost a year. It sounded like a great deal. I got Direct TV and... More...

  • UNREAL customer service nightmare



    We were new customers and had some issues getting a bill and tried on two separate occasions to contact someone to let us know how to pay our account. After not hearing back from anyone our service was cut off a month later. We were able to make a payment making the account current and our services were turned back on. Apparently there was an error with the payment information. I found out that the account number and the payment came back as "account closed". (Obviously a mistake) Apparently, this put a red flag on our account and we are now labeled as "fraudulent... More...

  • Dissatified cutmr



    I am extremely unhappy with Century Link. I had one representative tell me that my end bill would be around $40 max. he explained the bill in detail and the reasons why it would be that much and I was happy that he took the time to explain. I received a bill for $66 and when I spoke to the rep, she told me that a payment was not received in May and that I still owed for the last bill. Strange, because I was on automatic payments. I explained the prior conversation I had with the rep who told me a max of 40 and they did nothing and said you owe the 66. Needless to say, I am beyond annoyed... More...

  • They can't get their billing accurate!



    For 5 MONTHS we have been struggling with CL regarding our billing. They continually bill us for more than $50 too much each month. Each month we call and are told that it is 'now fixed', yet the next month we get the same wrong bill. We have called regular customer service, the escalations department, the corporpate office and e-mailed via social media. The corporate office told us that it was fixed, but then claimed that it was impossible for them to send us written confirmation. They also disconnected the call before we could respond. The next month the bill was still wrong.... More...

  • The worst customers service in the world.



    Centurylink is seriously the worst company in the entire world. I paid my bill minus the credits owed to me by my cell phone and TV companies and then had a 0 balance and they shut me off for nonpayment. When I called them to find out what was going on the customer service rep. yelled at me and kept interrupting me. She would not let me say a thing. I finally said to her between her yelling at me "would you please shut up and let me tell my side of the story." As I said this she was still interrupting me very rudely. After 20 minutes of taking her rudeness I finally said I want... More...

  • Shady 30 day money-back policy



    I signed up for Centurylink but found that their service didn't fit my needs. I canceled it after about 15 days and the rep that I spoke to said that after I sent my modem back, I should be good to go. About a week after, I start getting letters about how I still owe 99 dollars. I called the number included on the bill and the barely helpful rep took about 30 dollars off, but still said I owe the rest for phone installation and usage. I didn't want nor use the phone service! They pushed the service on me while telling me it came with the internet and that it was the... More...

  • Customer Service Rep rude and not helpful



    Contacted a customer service rep through their chat option to get my password reset so I can view my account online. She was very rude and if I didn't respond in 2 secs she would type "I haven't heard from you I will be ending the chat" but yet she required me to wait for a response from her more than 2 mins. The chat session continued to get worse and I asked to talk to a manager, she replied "they will tell you the same thing, how may I help you?"

  • Great Customer Service



    I have read a ton of terrible reviews of centurylinks customer service but I just got off the phone with them and had a wonderful experience I received a bill for early termination fee even though I canceled the service because I moved to a very rural area and the internet was out more than it was on. The representative was very polite and adjusted the bill right away I still have some charges for them coming out and installing new jacks but I no longer have to pay an early termination fee. If I ever move back into their service area I will be switching back over to them :) More...

  • Bait-and-switch Bundle of Lies!



    Signed up for $99.00 a month for six months raising to approximately $125.00 a month after that. They sent us separate bills every month totaling $166.50 a month!!! every month we called both companies and they both said it takes time to get the billing fixed, but they would credit us back the overages. On month seven they said there was nothing they could do and blamed each other and even claimed there had never been any previous phone calls and that there never was a bundling agreement.

    I was a century link customer for less than 30 days. I purchased the 20Mb plan and after doing multiple speed checks never got more than six Mb download and .5Mb upload. The prism television service was absolutely horrible. It was down for five days straight during my 28 day subscription. I canceled my subscription within the 30 day free trial and shipped back all the equipment in the boxes they sent me. Two months later they still continued to send me a bill for an outstanding balance. After talking with multiple century link representatives I finally found a person who is knowledgeable... More...

  • CenturyLink processing of payments by check



    I use CenturyLInk for land line and internet. I also bundle with them for DirecTv and Verizon cell service. When my bill arrives I pay each account separately with a check from different accounts in order to track spending. Twice now CentruyLink has only processed two of the three checks and then charged me an overdue fee for the check that did not get processed. In two separate conversations I was informed that the automatic check processing system is only able to handle one check ( in my case two) and the other check was never applied, resulting in overdue. There is no way to change this... More...

    I have been an centurylink internet service for several years. When originally ordered, we asked for the 12mbps service and were assured that we can get those speeds. recently I discovered, after experiencing extremely slow internet speeds, that my home was not even capable of receiving 12mbps because of the proximity of my home to the centurylink office! All this was confirmed by the centurylink tech that came out to investigate my slow speeds. When I learned this, I called centurylink to request a refund for all the years I was receiving 6mbps when I was paying for 12Mbps. I was told by... More...

    Century Link CONTINUES to refuse to replace bad telephone equipment in our rural neighborhood. Our phones work sporadically at best. And with no cell service in the area, we are often out of communication. No 911 calls for emergencies. NOTHING. After weeks and weeks of neighbors calling, they put a band aid on it and in another week or two we have the same problems.

  • Centurylink has been committing fraud by sending customers to collections



    BEWARE OF CENTURYLINK FRAUD: Centurylink has been committing fraud by sending customers to collections for not returning their modems when the customer really has, most customers will just pay the collections off because Centurylink waits 8 months without contacting the customer to notify them they have not received the Modem, and the customer finds out that after throwing away the tracking number. Some customers actually still have their tracking numbers. But Centurylink will then tell the customer that they are penalized for not returning the Modem in a timely manner such as myself. I...

  • Unauthorized charge of $480 in Direct TV bundle



    CenturyLink thinks it can steal $484 from me. My wife called CenturyLink for clarification on why our internet bill had increased by a couple dollars a month. The representative she pitched the idea of bundling internet with basic Direct TV service for almost the same amount per month. She told him she needed to check with me. So the rep called back and we both spoke with him. We asked him about set up charges and other hidden charges. He told us there would be a one time set up charge of between $50 and $54, but that he would send us a Visa gift card for $50 so that the set up would cost... More...

  • Century Link Steals from Elderly Women



    I deal with my mother-in-law's (87 with dementia) phone and it is billed to me. On a past move, CENTURY LINK'S service was so horribly poor I contacted the CEO and after two months, they issued a $120.00 credit, simply for my trouble (and about 18 hours of my own time invested to accomplish a move). Now we had to transfer the phone. We still had a credit with them but when they set up the new line, they: 1. Didn't transfer the old credit 2. Charged both the old line and new line for service in an overlapping period. 3. Charged for the moving cost twice. 4. Committed to stop... More...

    I had bundled service with Direct TV and Century Link. I started with Direct TV and then added the internet with Century Link later. I never had issues with Direct TV. I always knew what my bill was going to be - no question. After acquiring Century Link, my bill would differ, sometimes as much as $30.00. When I would call they would always give me some excuse that it was due to Direct TV. I of course wondered why things were different now.

This is our second time with Century Link. No issues the first time around except when our contract was up Comcast was offering a better deal that Century Link could not match. Now the reverse has happened and we are back with Century Link. We have had the service (top bundle package with 400 channels) for less than 2 weeks. We have had 4 replacements for our DVR box. Technician has been to our house each time and has indicated they have had a lot of trouble with the boxes. Not sure if the quality control issues are with Century Link or Motorola. Next, when we placed our order for the bundle services we were promised a $250 gift certificate by Clarissa K (employee number CAG138620) and we are now told that we were promised only $150 as that promotion is no longer valid. Seems Clarissa cannot come clean and has included in her notes on our account that we were promised a $150 gift certificate when services were sold on 8/9/2013. Funny how all of our notes match with what Century Link sold to us except the Gift Certificate. Century Link will not make good on the promise but we are certainly required to uphold our end of the contract. Next, there is a cable connecting services to our home sitting on top of the grass. The frequently visiting technician indicated the burying of the cable is done by subcontractors and can take up to 3 weeks. Lastly, no information was provided as to how to set up voice mail or how to retrieve messages. Seems Clarissa forgot to tell us this AND the fact we had to register on line for the gift certificate to arrive in the mail. Otherwise, there is no certificate and Century Link is not liable. Nice work Century Link. Your customer service sucks!

After being a Centurylink customer for over 2 years I switched from a phone/internet bundle to Prism's internet/cable bundle. I was informed the internet would be a lot faster with Prism but this was not the case. After 7 months of service and a notice of impending price increases I terminated my service. A few weeks later a larger than expected bill was received into my email. I tried to view the bill thru Century Link's website and could not so I called. I was informed I was charged an early termination fee as I had a verbal contract to retain internet services for 1 year. I explained this was not the case and requested they pull the records of my order call. I was told the records of calls from August 2012 would no longer be available. The rep was rude informing me over and over again that I had agreed to this on multiple occasions. She claimed one of these additional occasions would have been a group pre-install order call which I never received. I told her this and requested she provide me with the date of this call so I could show her phone records that this never occurred. She said it was on August 9th, but would not provide me with an email address or fax # to send call records to telling me it wouldn't matter anyway as I had agreed to this verbal contract and would be charged no matter what. Then the rep that was arguing with me insisting conversations that never occurred had occurred had the nerve to tell me she was tired of arguing with me. After stating there was another customer service # I could call she provided it but only after I requested it 3 times. Of course I did pull my phone records after the call and the phone calls on August 9th were with family and friends.

I have been fortunate with Prism. Nice install crew, and the local store is nearby, so they helped with signing up for rebates, etc... Lots cheaper than my former cable company. As a matter of fact I get phone, TV, and internet for $30 per month less than just cable and internet with the old company. It is not perfect, but neither was the old company. I will recommend Prism to friends and relatives unless something changes! Steve

This is absolutely the WORST company I have ever dealt with in my life. Nothing they say is correct/true. I don't know if they intentionally lie, or if they are just totally incompetent. I think the former.

If you have the luxury of avoiding these people - do so. You will be very sorry if you make any kind of agreement with them. Mark my words.

Someone really needs to look into this corporation's business practices. I have a hard time believing ANY business is really this bad by accident. I think they intentionally do things to have an excuse for overcharging people and hope the client won't notice or fight it.

Never in my life.......
