Price for Life 20 Mbps from CenturyLink

Up to 20 Mbps (speed may not be available in your area) seems small compared to offers of 100 Mbps or even a full gig of Internet. But did you know that, according to Netflix, you only need 5 Mbps to watch your favorite shows in high-definition video?

Of course, a connection of 20 Mbps is a good Internet speed for email, social media, and any other typical Internet task. It’s also a good Internet speed for casual gaming. If you live in an apartment or condo with one other person who also enjoys streaming, surfing, and gaming from a laptop or phone, this download speed will perfectly fit both of your needs.
