I will be establishing a home office in Colorado Springs, in the Briargate area, off of Summerset.

I am leaning towards using CenturyLink but I am concerned about reliability. My home was built in the mid 80s, so I assume it is copper coming into the house, and nothing fancy like FTTH.

Does anyone with an "older" house have any experience with CL?

I also live in the same area. My house was built in 1992. I have a copper line, was AT&T, then Qwest, now Centurylink.

I paid for 40 Mb/sec and I actually get 38M. It's generally very reliable. On the few occasions when it quits, I just unplug the power from the modem and plug it back in. That fixes it.

1889 house downtown. Limit was about 8mb. Reliable, just not very speedy compared to Comcast 60-80mb

I'll have a home office too, and for now Centurylink definitely offers the better deal. If I get even a rock solid 25MB out of 40MB I'd be pretty happy. This would be in west Colorado Springs, so if there are those using Centurylink in this region I'd be interested in your experience as well.

I'm in Phoenix and I hate my Centurylink internet DSL. Slow, slow, slow.
