Looks like Century Link got their act together. Ping times and speeds are still all over the place, but things look to be back to somewhat "normal."
Lets hope it stays that way!
@judahnator Dude, I had a chance to use Spectrum at $20 a month with twice the DL speed at half the cost. I still think that it's BS that the upload speeds are always so slow. It's been a better experience than Centurylink.
