CenturyLink is working on service reliability

CenturyLink, Inc. as part of its ongoing commitment to its customers in San Juan County, is actively working to provide network redundancy. This redundancy will allow voice, Internet, 911 and other critical services to be rerouted onto other facilities to maintain service in the event of a fiber cut within the islands.

In February, CenturyLink began phase one of providing redundancy from Friday Harbor to Eastsound and Lopez. It is increasing the capacity on the existing fiber optic network between Mount Constitution and Eastsound to support the new microwave radio system to be installed from Friday Harbor to Mount Constitution.
