CenturyLink deploys 100 Mbps broadband speeds in parts of Salt Lake City

Company plans to increase speeds for 240K homes and small businesses by mid-2016

SALT LAKE CITY CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL), a leading broadband services provider for consumers and businesses in Utah, is now offering faster broadband speeds to thousands of homes and small businesses in Salt Lake City. Enhancements to CenturyLink’s local network in Salt Lake City have increased its current broadband speeds up to 100 Mbps for thousands of customers along the Wasatch Front, with up to 240,000 homes and small businesses having access to these faster speeds by mid-2016.

“CenturyLink is committed to connecting our customers to the digital world; that’s why we’re providing technology to enable faster broadband speeds for hundreds of thousands of customers in Salt Lake City,” said Jeremy Ferkin, CenturyLink vice president of operations for Utah. “With the deployment of these faster broadband speeds, we continue to deliver on our commitment to help our customers communicate and connect with the world.”

Internet speeds up to 100 Mbps are ideal for homes with multiple high-bandwidth Internet users on many different devices and accommodates customers who frequently stream and download video content. With 100 Mbps speeds, customers can download a five gigabyte high-definition movie in less than seven minutes. CenturyLink’s 100 Mbps speed service also delivers faster upload speeds, creating a better experience when participating in online gaming, storing data in the cloud, and sharing photos and video clips.

Later this year, many of these homes along the Wasatch Front will also have access to CenturyLink’s interactive TV service, Prism® TV. In June 2015, Prism® TV was made available to customers in Salt Lake County, including many Salt Lake City locations, as well as in South Jordan. Additional communities will have access to the service as franchise agreements are approved by city and county leaders. Over the past two years, CenturyLink also deployed gigabit speeds to thousands of Utah residents and business locations; more customers will have access to these ultra-fast speeds in 2016 as CenturyLink continues to build its fiber network in Utah.

For special pricing offers on Internet speeds up to 100 Mbps, customers can visit the new CenturyLink retail store located in South Jordan at 10384 S. River Heights Drive, Suite 102 or go to www.centurylink.com.

The Gigabit Economy is #HereForGood

Guest post by Jeremy Ferkin, VP of CenturyLink UT:

In a recent interview with the Utah Business Magazine, I was asked to explain the new Gigabit Economy, and it got me thinking about how the Internet is changing how we do things, from getting a cab to watching a movie. The pace at which it’s happening is faster than many could have imagined. When businesses, consumers, government and education organizations can tap into fast and reliable broadband services and combine that with cloud technology, it can be transformational. That’s what we mean by the Gigabit Economy. CenturyLink customers are benefiting from this new business model, including a leading software provider that’s using our cloud platform to redistribute its products in new, more effective ways, and a business retailer that is able to share discounts and sales with its customers as they use mobile devices to shop on the business’s app.

As vice president of Utah operations, I am proud to say that our state is quickly becoming a full-fledged Gigabit Economy. For example, we are working with schools across our state to make gigabit Internet available to students. We currently deliver more than a full terabit of bandwidth to 1,412 schools and education locations across Utah.

The goal is to support our schools so administrators, faculty and students never have to worry about having enough bandwidth. We want to change the way people interface with technology and use it as a competitive edge in all aspects of their lives – that’s the Gigabit Economy.

This summer, we launched a celebration called #HereForGood to share the positive impact of our gigabit services in Utah. CenturyLink employees performed a variety of scheduled and spontaneous acts of charity to celebrate that CenturyLink is #HereForGood.

Our company’s investment in Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second is bringing great economic opportunities to Utah and to markets throughout our footprint. Since our initial announcement of gigabit capability in 2013, we have made gigabit service available to residential and business customers in parts of 17 markets, including Utah, where gigabit speeds are available to residents, businesses and educational institutions. Visit centurylink.com/fiber for more information, and to determine if services are available in your location. Customers not eligible for 1 gigabit service may qualify for speeds up to 40 Mbps or higher.

CenturyLink’s 1 Gbps service is now available to select business locations in Utah’s Lehi and Park City

Ultra-fast fiber Internet is available to nearly 1,000 more Utah business locations

LEHI and PARK CITY, Utah – CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) today announced the availability of 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) fiber speeds to nearly 1,000 select business locations in the Utah cities of Lehi and Park City.

Seize The Power

What can you do with broadband speeds of gigabit per second (Gbps)? That’s 1,000 Megabits per second—up to 100 times faster than the current national average speeds. For starters, you can download songs, movies and TV shows over the Internet in seconds. You can play games, hold a video conference and share files and photos, all high-quality experiences at ultra-high speeds.

That’s just the beginning. As we all acquire more Internet-connected devices, our need for more bandwidth proliferates. Back in 2012, Bloomberg estimated that the average U.S. household had five such devices—desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, gaming consoles and wearable tech among them. A year later, Reuters predicted that number would jump to 50 by 2020. Does that sound far-fetched? Maybe not, considering the burgeoning world of the Internet of Things in which our cars and home appliances connect with our must-have devices and with each other.

The power of 1 Gbps is not a luxury but, increasingly, a must-have for ordinary residents, as well as businesses. Call it the virtual cycle: As greater broadband capacity gets installed in one area, it’s driving demand for higher bandwidth elsewhere, as everyone wants to get on that bandwagon. (A recent Wall Street Journal story reports that as more people base home-buying decisions on the availability of broadband, high-speed Internet access is driving up the price of houses.)

With those growing needs in mind, CenturyLink, Inc. recently introduced 1 Gbps Internet broadband service to 3,600 households of Daybreak, through our ultra-fast fiber to the home (FTTH) network. This service allows residents of Daybreak, a master-planned community in South Jordan, to access some of the fastest upload and download Internet speeds in the nation. We’re committed to bringing 1 Gbps speeds to roughly 100,000 residential customers over the next 10 months, including Sugar House, Millcreek, downtown Salt Lake City, and Liberty Park, along with several cities along the Wasatch front.

Daybreak joins a family of already lit-up neighborhoods of residential and small and midsized business customers. CenturyLink has made 1 Gpbs service available to customers in parts of 17 states, stretching from Orlando, Fla. and Minneapolis-St. Paul to Seattle and Salt Lake City.

Selected households now have the same power as leading-edge businesses. With 1 Gbps “symmetrical” speed, you can upload data and multi-media files to the cloud (where they are backed up and stored) at the same ultra-fast rate as you download the TV shows and movies you can’t live without. You’ll also have the bandwidth to accommodate more devices in your life, as your phone communicates with your car, and your dishwasher starts talking to your washer and drier.

CenturyLink is proud to be putting this power into the hands not only of businesses, universities and schools, but also in homes. Welcome to the gigabit world.

Leading technology analyst firm Forrester Research also discusses PRM in a recent report. “You – and your partners – crave ‘modern PRM weaponry,’” wrote Tim Harmon, principle analyst of Forrester Research. “You should take every advantage you can to get to communicate with your partners more effectively… Partners regularly report to Forrester that the ‘transacting business’ element of their vendor relationship is the most burdensome and is the one thing that causes them to shift their investments and wallet share to other vendors.”[i]
