How Fast Is CenturyLink up to 80 Mbps Internet?
Netflix recommends an Internet speed of 5 Mbps to stream videos and one of 25 Mbps to experience your favorite shows in high definition, so 80 Mbps (speed may not be available in your area) is more than enough to get a crystal-clear image. Plus, if you and your preteen want to catch up on your favorite shows, you can watch on separate devices simultaneously—and get both videos in high definition.
Video streaming isn’t the only high-quality experience you get with 80 Mbps of broadband internet. If your kids want to enjoy their own Spotify stations in their individual rooms, each person can stream their favorite genres without skips or lags. And, with CenturyLink’s high-quality modems and routers, you can get high-speed Internet access from any room in the home.
Connect between two and four devices to the Wi-Fi upload and download.
