CenturyLink Pledges Support for FCC“™s COVID-19 Telecom Effort - top government contractors - best government contracting event

CenturyLink is waiving late payments for telecommunications, and internet services as well as suspending customer data caps in line with the Federal Communications Commission“™s “Keep Americans Connected Pledge.“

CenturyLink said in a statement it will not suspend telecom services for residents and small businesses through June 30th as part of the FCC“™s efforts to ensure connectivity amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, prepaid customers may have to contact CenturyLink regarding missed payments and internet access due to the company“™s system limitations, according to the statement.

“We continue to stand ready, willing and able to meet our customers“™ near-term and long-term needs and have been ensuring traffic continues to flow smoothly across our network, regardless of increased demand,“ CenturyLink noted.

FCC first announced the effort in March and is mandating telecom firms to suspend service termination penalties, waive late fees and open wifi hotspots across the U.S. throughout a 60-day period.

CenturyLink is among the first companies that responded to the FCC“™s call along with AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.
