Billing and Term Selection
Select the appropriate billing account to associate with this service.
From the Select Subscription Term menu, select a contract length for this connection.
TIP: Note how the Billing Summary numbers change based on the subscription term. Longer contract lengths come at a discounted price.

Review your information. When everything is correct, click Create Point-to-Point.

Per our cancellation terms, you have 24 hours to delete the connection without incurring any costs.

After the first 24 hours have passed, you can only delete services that are on month-to-month contracts.
