CenturyLink Brings 1-Gig Service to Utah Cities
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah -- CenturyLink, Inc.(NYSE: CTL) today announced the availability of Internet speeds of up to one gigabit per second for more than 2,500 businesses located in multi-tenant unit office buildings throughout Salt Lake City, Sandy, Midvale, Draper, South Jordan, West Jordan, Cottonwood Heights and other area municipalities.
Business customers located in buildings with CenturyLink's next generation fiber technology will be able to work faster without bandwidth constraints. Downloading a large file, such as a high-definition video, will take seconds, and gigabit technology allows customers to easily stream video content on multiple devices. Businesses benefit from instant access to cloud services and applications on demand and, with CenturyLink's symmetrical service, can simultaneously download or upload large multimedia files at identical speeds of up to 1 Gbps.
This service will outperform the slower upload speeds available through basic business broadband providers, including cable providers. CenturyLink's 1 Gbps service is equivalent to 1,000 Mbps—an Internet speed that is 100 times faster than average broadband speeds—and will have a direct connection to the company's recently upgraded 100 Gbps global network.
