TIL: Centurylink bought Level3. Didn’t know they had it in them. It’s a $54 billion dollar one – its big. Might help explain why so many Centurylink and Level3 parts of the internet have been having problems over the last few weeks as this year long process is coming to a close.
Can they handle it? Hope so Won’t be long though before there’s only 3 or 4 internet providers – including trunk lines – in the USA. Not sure if I like these monopolies. I wish it was just a name change but it looks like its much more than that.
