“We’ve been very busy this year deploying new products and services for our Woodbury customers, including gigabit broadband speeds and Prism TV. Now we are excited to show our current and potential customers how these products and services work and how they can improve their lives and businesses,” said Tyler Middleton, CenturyLink vice president of operations for Minnesota. “For example, customers can experience how CenturyLink Prism TV is different from cable and satellite. They can sample our super fast 1 gig service and find out more about the cloud-based services we offer to businesses through our CenturyLink Cloud platform, and they can also speak with a representative about their current services and new services available to them.”
The store also comes equipped with a newly designed small business consultation desk that allows business owners and decision makers to meet face-to-face with a representative who can evaluate their needs, make recommendations and explain more about CenturyLink Cloud and the various security features that come with CenturyLink business bundles.
