CenturyLink’s Website Wasn’t Alerted to New Gig Service…

Date: 6 Aug 2014 | posted in: MuniNetworks | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

So I was reading Bill Schrier’s article about CenturyLink’s announcement about supposedly investing in a gigabit for some people in some cities. He includes a link where people can sign up for new announcements as they come. I already checked my address in Saint Paul but it isn’t available. But I figured, sure, I’d like to know when it will be available. 

CenturyLink’s website apparently didn’t get the memo about the press release…

And as usual, I have to give a hat tip to Karl Bode, who regularly notes these “fiber to the press release” announcements. If CenturyLink were really going to invest in something, it would have to disclose the new plan to investors. But it hasn’t.
