CenturyLink Delivers 1 Gbps Fiber Service to Salt Lake City Office Buildings

  • CenturyLink
SALT LAKE CITY - CenturyLink announced the availability of Internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps for more than 2,500 businesses located in multi-tenant unit office buildings throughout Salt Lake City, Sandy, Midvale, Draper, South Jordan, West Jordan, Cottonwood Heights and other area municipalities.

Business customers located in buildings with CenturyLink's next generation fiber technology will be able to work faster without bandwidth constraints. Downloading a large file, such as a high-definition video, will take seconds, and gigabit technology allows customers to easily stream video content on multiple devices. Businesses benefit from instant access to cloud services and applications on demand and, with CenturyLink's symmetrical service, can simultaneously download or upload large multimedia files at identical speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

This service will outperform the slower upload speeds available through basic business broadband providers, including cable providers. CenturyLink's 1 Gbps service is equivalent to 1,000 Mbps—an Internet speed that is 100 times faster than average broadband speeds—and will have a direct connection to the company's recently upgraded 100 Gbps global network.

"The availability, quality, and competitiveness of broadband services are critical pieces of infrastructure for attracting new businesses to Salt Lake City," said Jeff Edwards, president and CEO of the economic development corporation of Utah. "Businesses need more bandwidth and faster connections to harness cloud applications that are becoming workplace necessities, and access to fast Internet speeds will help Salt Lake City provide new job opportunities and attract new capital investment. We commend CenturyLink on this significant investment in the community."

Managed Office for Business Customers
Business customers in the Salt Lake City area may also choose to take advantage of Managed Office, CenturyLink's fully managed IT services and cloud bundle, as a simple and worry-free option for businesses to operate their information technology capabilities more efficiently. The service bundles a business-grade data network and Hosted VoIP phone service with cloud-based applications for email, unified communications, security and data storage, all fully managed by CenturyLink. Managed Office provides equipment and hardware including feature-rich IP phones, routers, switches and WiFi access points for a monthly price-per-employee workstation that can help make it easy to predict the cost of managing the entire communications network.

"Small and midsized companies are important to CenturyLink, and we are focused on innovations that can help these customers reach their goals and simplify their lives using advanced technology. We're excited to bring a one gigabit per second broadband solution to multi-tenant unit businesses in Salt Lake City," said Larry Walters, CenturyLink vice president and general manager – Salt Lake City. "A faster Internet connection is often the gateway for smaller companies to adopt cloud computing and managed services. With Managed Office, forward-thinking businesses can turn over their information technology operations to the management of a trusted partner so they can focus on excellence within their core competencies."
