Default Century Link vs. Comcast

We are looking into the possibility of switching from Comcast (bundled service) to Century Link. We were provided information from a Century Link rep about the advantages of CL over Comcast. We are in a fiber optics area, (Buttonwood) and would appreciate any input from anyone who has switched services.

Have CenturyLink and love it EXCEPT....frequent freezing (every other day) but wait 10 minutes and it'll come back. Irritating when I'm on the internet though.

Yes. You can reboot the system by unplugging it or wait.

Do you know if it available in st Charles, is the TV portion Direct TV with a dish? Is your bundled price for for a year or two or is it a standard rate? Comcast service is fine but very expensive.

Default Century Link

We have Comcast and were ready to switch to Century Link because their bundle was cheaper and they had some good added features. However, when the tech arrived we found out we could have HD on only one TV at a time. So we cancelled and stayed with Comcast. Century Link can only support one HD TV at a time in some neighborhoods so check if that feature is important to you.

Our Centurylink will support 2 HD's either viewing or recording. I usually record in standard if hubby and I are watching different HD shows.

We had Comcast before we became full-time, switched to Century Link for about 8 months (but I'm not convinced we had true fiber optic service, we're in Poinciana), then due to the frequent freezing, and I mean a couple of times a day, we went back to Comcast. Each service has some advantages, but overall Comcast is working better for us. YMMV
