How do I start CenturyLink service?

To start service, call the CenturyLink phone number at 1-888-561-9173 or order online now. At the end of the ordering process, we’ll schedule an installation date and time with you. Your technician will have your new service up and running as soon as possible on the day of your appointment.

Can I use my own modem and router with CenturyLink Internet?

You’re welcome to use your own equipment, but CenturyLink can’t guarantee the compatibility or performance of third-party devices on the network. Just as important, CenturyLink customer support won’t be able to resolve third-party hardware issues. So look carefully at your options before you choose a router.

CenturyLink modems and WiFi routers, on the other hand, come optimized for the CenturyLink network and your current plan speed. CenturyLink equipment also auto-updates so you can count on consistent performance for the life of your account. Start your CenturyLink order online now or call 1-888-561-9173.
