Tacoma’s Click Network on Friday afternoon warned customers that door-to-door salespersons for a competing service were proclaiming Cllick’s imminent demise.

Such news is tot true, said Diane Lachel, Click government and community relations manager

Her office, she said, has “received several calls from concerned customers who have questions about the accuracy of information provided by door-to-door salespeople representing CenturyLink.”

“That is not true. Click Cable TV is still in business, offering competitive pricing – and will continue to do so for many years to come,” said Tenzin Gyaltsen, Click Network general manager, in a statement issued Friday.

Lachel said her office had been in touch with CenturyLink officials. “This was represented as not part of their business practices. It could have been a contract salesperson. I had a good conversation with CenturyLink management.”

Jan Kampbell, South Sound spokeswoman for CenturyLink, said late Friday afternoon, “We have a great relations with Click. I can’t imagine that we would ever do anyhting like that. It’s just not the way we do business.”
