What is CenturyLink?

CenturyLink is a US provider of high speed internet, phone and TV services.

The company is the one of the biggest telecommunications companies in the US, usually ranking behind Verizon and AT&T.

First operating under the Century brand in 1968, the company had its beginnings back in 1930 with the Oak Ridge Telephone Company. Growing through acquisitions, the company changed brand name many times – Central Telephone and Electronics, to Century Telephone Enterpises, to CenturyTel.

In 2009, following the acquisition of Embarq, the company announced that the combined entity would now be called CenturyLink.
