I, a physician, cyber expert, and system builder could not deal with the duplicity, irresponsibility, unreliability, and bold faced carelessness of CL and especially their corporate mindset.

Centurylink's internet isn't that great, and my service has been questionable. They throttle your speed if you're downloading certain things they don't like, which means they are constantly keeping an eye on what you are doing online. There are many legal purposes to use bittorrent traffic, but yet that is the traffic I'm talking about them throttling. Also sometimes certain streaming video sites won't stream very well, because the internet is being throttled. Centurylink's service so far has been unsatisfactory at best. I am supposed to have 10Mbps speed, and at times it's as if I'm using dial-up, or even worst. Supposedly I don't even live in an area where there are a lot of people using Centurylink, so my service should be great. Internet providers are starting to stick their noses where they don't belong.
embarq / century link worked with NebuAd, a Behavioral Targeting advertising company to track customers' internet browsing habits. The goal was to deliver relevant ads based on browsing history. This has raised several legal and privacy concerns.
