*A Lumen master services agreement for network services with minimum 12-month term and early termination fees is required to gain access to Dynamic Connections. To utilize Ethernet Dynamic Connections from a premise or data center location customers must first have a Lumen-provided UNI that meets certain requirements. Existing Lumen eServices customers may already have UNIs that meet this criteria; customer’s Lumen sales team can make this determination. No UNI is necessary for cloud-to-cloud connectivity. Listed rates are flat hourly or per month, per connection, stated in $USD, available to eligible business customers, and exclude network services, taxes, fees and surcharges. Services not available everywhere. Lumen may change, cancel, or substitute offers and services, or vary them by service area at its sole discretion without notice. Credit approval and deposit may be required. Additional restrictions, terms and conditions apply. Listed speeds vary due to conditions outside of network control, including customer location, equipment, access through a wireless connection, and are not guaranteed.
