MONROE, La., June 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CenturyLink, Inc. (NYSE: CTL) has been recognized by ATLANTIC-ACM with two Business Connectivity Service Provider Excellence awards for delivering high-quality customer service and value with its retail data service offerings. The awards, given at Telecom Exchange (TEX) 2018, offer validation that CenturyLink's expertise and its secure global network continue to drive added value to organizations on their digital transformation journeys.
"CenturyLink's win for Customer Service and Data Value is well deserved, and speaks to their customers' appreciation of both the services they provide and the support they put behind those services," said Fedor Smith, president, ATLANTIC-ACM. "This achievement is particularly impressive since CenturyLink is deep in the process of the Level 3 integration."
The Customer Service Award is based entirely on customer service score averages within ATLANTIC-ACM's survey of nearly 2,500 unique carrier ratings, conducted from March through June. The Data Value Award is given to the provider who receives the highest combined ratings for perceived quality and price competitiveness of their data service offerings.
