Default Century link install

I just had CenturyLink installed and here’s what I learned: CL internet uses the phone line (DSL I think). I had a tech install it and he had to make calls to the central office, work outside and finally inside. The tech install costs about $100 which I think is worth it. What is not worth it is the ADDITIONAL $100 they charge to program a usable password and help you hook up your stuff. Hope this helps. PS: In a past rental I was in, CL shipped the wrong modem to replace the bad one!!

Most of the new CenturyLink installs do not use phone lines. They use a fiber connection (Phone, or DSL, has very limited speed. Fiber is only limited by the hardware). It is an ethernet connection, not coax or phone line. For my home, they had to connect the fiber, and run it into the house.

Only very old sections of The Villages would still use a phone line... and if it is DSL, I would never use it.

I had an issue with the install. So I used John Chumbler (325-289-1596). I've used him before for a computer issue. He is very through and very friendly. He will be a lot cheaper than a CL tech. My friend used him to cut her cable service and setup streaming.

If I could make a suggestion, I wish I hadn't contracted with CL to use their router. You have more control over one you own and don't have to go through CL and wait for their techs when it needs service. The $5 a month rental fee adds up over years.
