I am on disability and I went into a Century Link store to inquire and purchase internet services while there a middle age while male sold me a internet package in which I paid a deposit. While he was trying to find the right package for me I notice a flyer for reduced internet services I ask him ” What do I have to do to get the reduced services”? He explain to me that I needed to fill out the application and place in the mail after that someone will contact me to tell me what services I qualify for. He went to the back to retrieve the application placed in my hand then began to finish up completing my order. Several months went by a bill lager than expected arrived, I figured that the next bill would include the discount.
I never received the discounted rate. I called Century Link customer service to ask about my application and where can I locate the discount on the bill? I was informed that my application had being received and they see that I do qualify for the discounted service based on the documentation that I submitted but, unfortunately I needed to do the application before I purchased services. The gentlemen that sold me the service, took my deposit, handed me the application, and filtered instructions on what to do. He was responsible for telling me that I needed to do the application first if I wanted to utilize the discounted services as I did and still do qualify. As a result of him selling me the service without filtering the proper information for qualifying I have a bill that I can’t pay, It’s being disconnected as result of an higher than expected bill, there is a family members in the home who have a job that requires the use of the internet they can’t properly report b/c we no longer have the internet. On top of that my credit is in jeopardy. I have a bill for 151.73 for internet on a fix income.
I revisit the store and was given an apology, I was told that they remember my daughter and I. A rep stated it was nothing they could do. As a customer services rep the job is to provide the best service possible for the customer, this agent failed me and jeopardized our quality of living as we don’t always have transportation out to public places to utilize the internet.

I am a long term customer (20yrs) or as my monthly bill says, “Loyal customer.”

I do not like the way your system works at the end of a promotional period. I do not like to have to call customer service and beg them again for a new promotion as a long term “loyal customer”. I want a low flat rate from month to month period.

My promo ended last month and this months bill went from $31.98 to $62.98. There was nothing “noticeable” on last months bill to tell me that my promotion is now ending and that i need to call c/s and beg for a new promo.

I spoke with three different c/s reps today and they are now giving me a new “promotional rate as a loyal customer.” But they can not take care of this months bill. I will not pay the $62.98, i am sending in a check for $31.98. If this is a problem and you desire to loose a “loyal customer” of 20yrs over $31.00, then i am willing to go to someone else.

Again, i do not like your promo system. Just give us a fair monthly flat rate and be done with it.

Please copy this customer response to the following people within Century link:

Glen Post – CEO
Karen Puckett- COO
Sue Anderson- VP Washington State

Thank You,
Loyal Customer

Centurylink bills have a local phone service charge which needs to be explained before I use the company for my phone service.
What is Non-Telecom SVC Surcharge????
Someone who has Centurylink service told me it was for Centurylink Voice mail and inside wiring maintenance. What if a person does not have voice mail and what if that same person already has an inside wire repair plan????
Would Centurylink double charge?????

I have had the worse experience with this company since the day I started.. horrible customer service, a person says one thing and the other says another… now im stuck with a bill from Verizon that some jack ass from century link singed me up with.. I never wanted a Verizon home phone, what I thought I was getting was a century link home phone.. so now I have to pay the fees that are owed to Verizon, I honestly think century link should be held responsible!

I just sent this email to customer service and I am re-posting it but I know it will NOT do any good other than just feeling better about venting my frustration with this poor excuse of a company.

I just wanted to let my frustration known regarding my internet speed. It is very very very slow and unreliable. I keep getting marketing pieces from you, even though I am already a customer, saying that I can get internet speeds up to 40mps in my area if I only switch. If that is the case then why don’t I already. I check with one of your representatives every time I get one of your marketing pieces and all they say it is not available yet. This has been the case for over years at least 7 when you guys where QWest. I have been hearing the same promise since then.

I used to be a customer then canceled then came back to century Link because I have to have internet and Comcast is too expensive on its own. I regret that I switched back to century link but I HAD NO CHOICE. My decision was more to get Direct TV service then your internet turtle. I know you will simply send me an email saying “oh we are sorry” and “we are working at getting better speeds for your area” and things like that so please don’t apologize for something I am starting to hate, just get it done!!!!

I don’t recommend Century Link to people, in fact I simply tell them if they can afford it go with Comcast and/or use your internet card with your cell phone carrier. It might be more but at least you can do everything you need without having to wait for downloads or uploads to complete.

I don’t believe companies like yours care about one account so please also spare me the we care email as well. I am calling out your CEO Glen Post III and challenging him to either make the promised changes (I have been hearing about upgrading the “lines”, what ever that means, for YEARS now) or else pay for us to have a better reliable internet service than the poor product you shell out for small communities like ours.

Thank you for your time (if it even reaches anyone who can effect change). I guess I should say thank you to the Customer Service Rep who is reading this email for your time. Don’t mean to rant but the company you work for is ridiculous!!!

I have been trying to get someone on the phone to cancel call forwarding on my home phone. I started waiting at 11:00 am, it is now 11:24 am and I am still on hold. This service is very unsatisfactory. As soon as I can I will probably cancel my service with Century Link. 11:27 am, I finally got a person to talk to and get the problem resolved.


David Reno July 24, 2014 at 4:15 pm

I know by reading these responses, that corporate does not see these. But service is service or not. I live 1-1/4 miles from sub station and speeds are .01 to .33 on a system that advertises 1.5 ha ha. The answer-we over sold the service- we can give you 5 dollars off your bill. What can we do?


Jose V. August 5, 2014 at 5:14 am

Mr Reno,

I guess I shouldn’t complain about already getting 1.5 speed. I have it and I still say HA HA like you to that cause its not even that all the time. I have been told for YEARS many in fact that the speed is not here yet. But I get the same marketing piece in the mail saying I can get up to 40mps if only I switch, what a joke!!

I hope you get your issue resolved soon.
My regards.

Jose V.
