Our Editor's Notes on CenturyLink's Phone-Based Customer Care

CenturyLink is a technology company that is perhaps best known for offering consumer and business telecommunications, broadband Internet and DirectTV services. As a provider of services in 37 U.S. states, it isn't surprising that its customer service departments get a lot of calls.

Why do People Call CenturyLink Customer Support?

People call CenturyLink customer service for a range of reasons, including:

  • Requesting the start of new service
  • Making changes to existing services
  • Canceling or transferring service
  • Technical support for services or devices
  • Upgrading or purchasing equipment or devices
  • Questions about the proper use of services or equipment
  • Scheduling technician visits
  • Questions about accounting and billing issues
  • Making payment plans

Best Practices for Calling CenturyLink Customer Service

To help ensure a productive conversation with CenturyLink customer service representatives, check out these tips:

  • Check to make sure you are calling the correct number for the service that you are requesting. CenturyLink has different numbers for various departments, so check the website or your latest bill for what number to call.
  • Have your account number, as well as any correspondence or bills related to your inquiry, in front of you. Nothing is more frustrating (for you or the representative, than finally beginning a conversation only to have to search for documents that you don't have handy.
  • If you are requesting technical support for your Internet, phone or DirectTV, keep in mind that the representative will likely ask to perform remote diagnostic testing. This will be easier if you are in the same room as the device or your computer. If you are calling about broadband service from a mobile phone, and your phone is currently connected to your WiFi, switch off the WiFi.
  • Keep pen and paper handy so that you can take notes during your call. This can be helpful if you need to record confirmation numbers and can be particularly useful if you need to escalate your case.

How Do People Feel About Their Calls to CenturyLink Customer Support?

Reports on CenturyLink customer service is mixed. Some customers are very pleased with the service that they've received while others have complaints. Areas of dissatisfaction often involve inconsistent information provided by customer service representatives, as well as a failure to follow-through on promises made.

Notable Media Reports

In one reported case, a long-standing customer entered into a payment arrangement with CenturyLink as a way of paying off a past due balance. Despite this agreement and an explanation that his first payment would take a few days to arrive, CenturyLink disconnected his service anyway, demanding a deposit before reconnection. Eventually, the situation was resolved, but not until the story was reported on by a local journalist.

What Kind of Issues can CenturyLink Customer Support Resolve?

Customer service representatives for CenturyLink can resolve a range of issues over the phone, including enrolling you into a new service as well as transferring, changing and canceling service.

In addition, a representative can perform some diagnostics on your service and equipment. The representative may also be able to teach you how to use your equipment and get the most out of your broadband, phone and DirectTV services.

What can't Be Resolved by Phone with CenturyLink?

If your situation can only be resolved by replacing or repairing equipment, you will need to either schedule a technician appointment or make arrangements to swap out devices at a CenturyLink location.

If you want to pay your bill in cash, you will need to visit an authorized payment center. Be sure to bring your latest CenturyLink bill with you so as to ensure that your payment is properly credited to your account.

What can I do if I am Unhappy With my Call to CenturyLink?

If your first call to CenturyLink doesn't resolve your issue, don't give up. There are still things you can do:

  • If you haven't already done so, write down what happened during your call. Having this information in writing can make it easier for you to describe what happened to other CenturyLink agents.
  • Call back. You may have had a bad experience with one representative, but the next person you speak to may have the training and ability to help.
  • Use CenturyLink's live chat option to communicate with a representative. A variation on this is getting in touch via CenturyLink's social media accounts. Either option provides you with a transcript of your conversation, something that can be very useful if you have to pursue the matter further.
