CenturyLink Expands High-Speed Internet Service to Customers in Litchfield

Service Delivers Connection Speeds up to 12 Mbps in areas near Ramsey Ave.

Oct 24, 2011

LITCHFIELD, Minn. – As part of its ongoing commitment to its customers in Minnesota, CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE:CTL, news, filings), has expanded its high-speed Internet services to residential and business customers in Litchfield offering connection speeds up to 12 Mbps.

Earlier this year CenturyLink acquired Qwest, and the company has been busy focusing on improving and expanding broadband availability and increasing connectivity speeds to customers, especially those living in rural areas.

“Now that CenturyLink and Qwest have merged, we have stronger financial and technical resources to bring a wider variety of services and greater broadband availability to customers in Minnesota,” said Erik Genrich, CenturyLink vice president and general manager for Minnesota Outstate, which includes all areas outside of the Metro Minneapolis-St. Paul footprint. “We understand how important it is for our customers to have access to fast, affordable Internet service so CenturyLink has made broadband availability a priority.”

Residents near and around Central Park and the CenturyLink Central Office on Ramsey Ave. will see some of the fastest speeds since that is where the service is fed from; however, the speed increase will benefit many areas around Litchfield. To inquire more about the service, call 320.257.3737 or visit
