  • CenturyLink launches 1 gigabit fiber service in Orem, Utah

    CenturyLink, Inc. today announced the availability of symmetrical broadband speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) for select Orem businesses and residential developments.


    “We are extremely pleased to welcome Orem to the growing list of Utah cities that we are enabling with ultra-fast gigabit service,” said Jeremy Ferkin, vice president of Utah operations, CenturyLink. “This advanced, fiber-based solution allows businesses to operate and innovate more effectively than ever before and can bring new capabilities to residents.”


    By extending Fiber-to-the-Premise connections to Orem business locations, the company has scaled its fiber network to offer competitive pricing on IP-based fiber bundles that converge data, Internet and voice service. With 1 Gbps speeds, residential customers will be able to stream high-definition video content with little to no delays and download movies, songs and TV shows in seconds. Customers who have multiple devices connected to one Internet connection in the home will have more than enough capacity and speed to support other uses of broadband such as online gaming, home automation, and increasingly important cloud services.


    “This is a significant event for our city,” said Orem Mayor Richard Brunst. “The impact to our economic development will be tremendous and set our city apart from many cities across the country. This will play a valuable role in the well-being among our businesses and our residents.”


    CenturyLink’s fiber-based business solutions are flexible and agile to support a business as it grows by enabling employees to work in the cloud, share multimedia files, stream video content and back-up data in real time. CenturyLink’s symmetrical upload and download fiber speeds of up to 1 Gbps outperform the slower upload speeds available through basic business broadband providers, including many cable companies. 


    This 1 Gbps service offering in Orem expands CenturyLink’s 1 Gbps footprint beyond Salt Lake City and its surrounding communities, where service for business and residential customers launched in 2014.


    Business customers can visit www.centurylink.com/saltlakecity  to learn more about CenturyLink’s fiber-based services, including speeds up to 1 Gbps, and to determine if service is available in their location.
