From a tiny rural telephone exchange with 75 customers that sold for $500 in 1930, CenturyLink has grown into a giant telecom with $47 billion in assets, $18 billion in annual revenues and 43,000 employees. The company describes itself on its website as “a global communications, hosting, cloud and IT services company enabling customers to transform their businesses and their lives through innovative technology solutions. CenturyLink offers network and data systems management, Big Data analytics and IT consulting, and operates more than 55 data centers in North America, Europe and Asia. The company provides broadband, voice, video, data and managed services over a 250,000-route-mile U.S. fiber network and a 300,000-route-mile international transport network.”
CenturyLink came to Colorado in 2010, when it acquired a majority interest in Denver-based Qwest Communications. Its services are available to residents of Colorado Springs as well as to more than 90 percent of Coloradans. CenturyLink competes with 38 local internet service providers, including fellow telecom giant Comcast.
Depending upon location, CenturyLink offers 1-gigabit fiber service to Colorado Springs businesses.
