Edge Bare Metal enables self-service cost management with your bare metal servers and associated networks. After you provision a bare metal server, your account automatically enters a pay-as-you-go model granting you the ability to provision and delete bare metal servers on-demand as your budget and business needs change. You can also enter into a term-based billing contract with discounts. To learn more about term-based billing, contact your Lumen account specialist.
Billing starts after you successfully provision a bare metal. You are billed based on the configuration selections made for each bare metal server instance created. You are invoiced monthly, in arrears, for your total Edge Services billable charges for active services during that billing period.
The power states and applicable billing for a bare metal server are as follows:
Lumen charges for deleted bare metal servers based on the configuration, network charges, and other applicable services tied to the server during the up time of the server during a billing cycle.

Provisioning a bare metal server has the following cost:
You can view your Edge Computing Solutions invoices online. All Edge Computing Solutions (Edge Bare Metal, Edge Network) and any additional billable add-on services tied to your Edge Services account show on a consolidated invoice.
Control Center lists your current invoice and previous 18 months of invoices. You can access Control Center directly from the Edge Services portal under the Support tab.
You can stop all billing by deleting all of your bare metal instances, and will be charged a final bill of service for the usage on the last billing cycle.
After you delete all billable services, you can choose to leave your account in an inactive, non-billable state with no penalty. This grants you the flexibility to easily access an inactive account and resume services at any time.
If you want to cancel your Edge Computing Solutions account, contact your Lumen representative or the Lumen Edge Customer Care team.
A request to cancel an Edge Services account will result in termination of all services, infrastructure, network connections, and licensing associated with the account across the compute types (e.g., Edge Bare Metal). If you want to use Edge Services after canceling your account, you need to create a new Edge Services account.
