I've been a Qwest customer pretty loyally since 2005. Decent service, less decent bandwidth but it worked fine for me. Ever since the change over to Century Link my stupid internet has gotten slower and slower. I had the 1.5Mbs service the whole time and it's been fine until the last month or so where it seems slower every day. A speed test last night revealed my download speed to be 0.50Mbs. I swear these assholes are slowing it down on purpose to force me to upgrade and that really pisses me off. It's now gotten to the point where I can't even stream NetFlix over it anymore -- it stops to buffer every 10 minutes. Extremely annoying and it NEVER used to do that. Anyway, I have to have a landline phone for my alarm system -- otherwise I don't use it at all. What I simply cannot figure out in their stupid pricing/promotional structure is how much the 7Mbs service plus basic phone (no long distance or any frills) costs. Anyone have this who can tell me the REAL monthly cost? Even calling them is no help because in my previous experience they tell you one thing on the phone repeatedly and then your bill shows up and it's completely different (much higher). I wish I had other options for phone + internet, but the land line thing is tying me down pretty badly.
