Switched long distance connects calls to the public switched telephone network (PSTN) via the prescribed interexchange carrier (PIC) assigned to your outgoing telephone line. Switched long-distance call fees include per-minute-of-use charges for both the originating and terminating ends of the call. Switched long distance does not require you to have any additional equipment on your premises.

Dedicated Long-Distance Service

CenturyLink Dedicated Outbound Long Distance service provides local access to the CenturyLink national network via a local loop circuit using CenturyLink owned and operated facilities, third-party provider facilities, or facilities you arrange on your own. Actual bandwidth and speed of circuits can vary from 56/64 Kbps or 1.544Mbps up to 1Gbps. Dedicated long distance call fees include monthly charges for the dedicated circuit and per-minutes-of-use charges for the terminating end of the call. On premise, long-distance routing equipment is needed to accommodate dedicated long distance.

How It Works

Outbound Long Distance connects over the robust CenturyLink multi-protocol label switching (MPLS), OC-192 fiber optic SONET network to all major serving areas in the country as part of a complete suite of communications tools available to complex large business customers. The national CenturyLink interexchange network infrastructure combines the use of a traditional circuit switched platform with a next-generation voice services platform, so you know your service is supported by the latest technology.
