CenturyLink says it had made gigabit high speed access available to more than 115,000 additional U.S. business locations and in five additional states.
After that expansion, the gigabit service is available to nearly 490,000 small and midsized business (SMB) locations in 17 states.
CenturyLink is launching symmetrical gigabit fiber service to SMB customers in parts of Iowa, Idaho, North Carolina, Ohio and Wisconsin and expanding its availability in nine of the 12 states where CenturyLink initially deployed gigabit fiber for business customers in 16 cities in August 2014.
The nine states are: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington. CenturyLink also provides 1 Gbps speeds in parts of Missouri, Nebraska and South Dakota.
