The Difference Between Qwest DSL And Other Connections

Friday, February 10th, 2012

When it’s time for you to switch your internet service, you may be wondering which connection can offer you the most in terms of speed and value. For example, can the connection you get from a company like Qwest DSL compete with a connection like fiber optic? The most important thing to realize when comparing connections is the differences between how they get you online. DSL delivers a connection with your phone line. The signal in the line is split to allow for voice and data, which is delivered over copper telephone lines. In the case of fiber optic, lines are used for data only. In addition, the lines are constructed of pure glass fibers which are then encased in a polymer coating. Data is transmitted over this type of cable using light pulses, meaning that data travels faster, as it is moving at the speed of light.

Is Qwest Internet Right For You?

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

If you’ve been reading the news, then you probably know that Qwest internet became CenturyLink in 2011. And while the name and logo may have changed, those looking for internet will still have the same problem: deciding whether or not Centurylink is a provider that will meet their internet needs. When considering any company, knowing how you use the internet is the most important thing, because the more high-bandwidth activities you engage in online, the more data you will use each month. Understanding which block of data you fall into will make it much easier to choose a package. Determining the reliability of a company is another step, which can be completed by reading customer reviews that detail how a particular company dealt with an issue the customer was having.

Why Companies Like Quest DSL Can Still Compete

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

You may think that the only types of internet left are the mobile wireless and fiber optic kinds. And those kinds of speeds can get expensive. But the truth is that you can still get a reliable and affordable connection with a company like Quest DSL. DSL may be viewed as an outdated type of internet, but it’s actually much faster than many people think. And it’s also more convenient, because this internet type uses the connection that already exists in your phone line. DSL speeds can reach 15 Mbps for downloads and 1Mbps for uploads, which is more than enough for someone who considers themselves a moderate internet user. If a user should need more speed from time to time most ISPs will offer a ‘boost’ feature that temporarily speeds up the connection for the downloading of files.

One County’s Qwest DSL Phone Service Restored After Nor’easter

Monday, November 7th, 2011

A freak snow storm that hit the North East at the end of last month continues to wreak havoc in the form of power outages and cleanup of downed trees. But at least one county in the New Jersey area now has phone service. Former Qwest DSL provider CenturyLink announced on November 3rd that phone services are now back in operation in Hunterdon County, either under commercial or generator power. Most residents in the New Jersey area did not lose their telephone service, thanks to the company’s deployment of portable generators where possible. CenturyLink has stated that those still without telephone service in the area may have an issue unrelated to the power interruption, such as a downed line or other isolated problems. Those with DSL service may have to wait longer for it to be restored, the company said.

Former Quest DSL Cost To Service Customers Questioned By 20-Year Program

Monday, October 10th, 2011

The High Cost Support Mechanism is a program which was established nearly 20 years ago. Funded by ratepayers, the program’s goal was to ensure that all Colorado residents received affordable phone service. As a result, former Quest DSL company CenturyLink has been reimbursed up to $50 million each year to help cover its costs to the approximately 40,000 rural customers it serves. But the Colorado Office of Consumer Counsel is calling for a program overhaul, saying that there’s doubt as to whether the cost is still too high for the provider to service areas that qualify for the subsidy. CenturyLink’s stance is that its expenses such as upgrades and network maintenance are still more than the $17 monthly it is allowed to charge for basic residential phone service in some areas.
