Their ‘Where is my Technician?’ portal is a handy tool for subscribers who would have previously been left with only a telephonic option.
So, when you are enquiring about the status of your technician visit, the company acts promptly.
In the early days, customers would be required to call the tech support number to know the status of the technician visit. This would require going through all the auto-attendant processes, which just adds more time.
But CenturyLink’s ‘Where is my Tech?’ is a much faster way than was traditionally used.
If customers are enquiring about a CenturyLink technician’s Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) for non-same day appointments, this will not be available, rather only the 4-hour window will be displayed.
This appointment window is though, subject to change, due to the high demands that US CenturyLink offices receive as more and more customers look to improve their broadband speeds and upgrade their routers and WIFI modems.

What about my Installation Appointment?
If customers are anticipating an installation for their home, the Company’s ‘Where is My Technician?’ site form is handy. Because it is always exciting to get a new connection.
Modem and/or broadband installations can easily take up to 6 hours if work involves things such as extra wiring, or installation of outlets.

Due to this, it is highly recommended for homeowners expecting a technician, to take the day off work should they normally work on the same day of their scheduled technician appointment.
What If I’m Not Available?

Rescheduling an appointment must be done at least 24 hours before the scheduled appointment window. Otherwise, they may still be charged due to the technician not being able to carry out work, when they are on contracted hours.
Reschedule due to Company’s Problem
Recent reports from the cable commission show that the issue of CenturyLink technicians missing appointments.
It is something that happens more often than one would expect, with dozens of appointments being rescheduled each week across the USA.
CenturyLink blames this on the high demand that continues to grow for Fibre Broadband.
Their newest gigabit services are attractive, and rightly so, offering speeds that are more than 40 times as fast compared to standard broadband connections.
It is a balance of two weights that ultimately the customer will either be rewarded or somewhat disappointed from.
Their customer support hotline continues to underperform, and the technician tracking tool will hopefully soon disassociate most if not all need to call support when customers are chasing up technician appointments.
Hold times of up to 30 Minutes are still reported from impatient customers looking for help.
So, it will be vital for CenturyLink to inform customers that they can track their dedicated technician in two clicks, rather than over a phone call that could last several minutes.
Customers can access the ‘Where is my Technician?’ web portal using the link below, only a phone number or Repair Ticket Number is required.
