Information about the cancellation of some CenturyLink VoIP phone services

If you've received a notice about the planned discontinuance of Digital Home Phone, Simple VoIP, or Business VoIP service, you may have questions.

When will my internet phone service be disconnected?

The three affected VoIP phone services will be out of order effective October 13, 2023.

Will this affect my other CenturyLink services?

Any other services you have from CenturyLink, such as internet or landline phone service, will NOT be impacted by the discontinuance of your VoIP phone service.


Your other services will continue with no change to the applicable rates, terms, or conditions.
