CenturyLink Metro Ethernet service combines the power of Ethernet and optical technologies across metro-/wide-area network (MAN/WAN) to deliver low cost, scalable, and secure bandwidth. With copper1 and fiber networks providing native Ethernet service, CenturyLink Metro Ethernet service offers flexibility while simultaneously decreasing costs, as compared to carrying an equivalent bandwidth on traditional synchronous optical network (SONET)-based networks. This allows you to upgrade and increase speeds quickly to meet your growing bandwidth needs. CenturyLink Metro Ethernet also provides local area network (LAN)-to-LAN connectivity between two or more customer locations within a metro area.
The CenturyLink network covers the entire continental United States and has one of the largest fiber footprints. Internationally, we provide coverage to hundreds of destinations.
