CenturyLink eyes partnerships for rural broadband and rolls out price-for-life

By Greg Avery

As CenturyLink rolls out new "price for life" services and invests in its network to improve internet speed to nearly 700,000 people in Colorado, it's also trying a new approach to bringing broadband to areas that lack it - public-private partnerships with local communities.

The Monroe, Louisiana-based telecom has been negotiating partnerships with some Western slope communities and at least one on the northern Front Range to expand its fiber-optic network into areas it previously considered uneconomical to do so.
