Overview

Special Access Discount Pricing Plans from CenturyLink offer wholesale customers the opportunity to earn additional savings on the cost of access services. Your total savings can range from approximately 20% to as much as 50% off the full monthly cost of most qualified services. Actual savings will vary based on length of term as well as the number and types of services included.

With Special Access Discount Pricing Plans you may:

  • Reduce your network costs to increase profitability.
  • Lower the cost of service to your customers to increase your competitive advantage.
  • Add new access services to expand your network capacity and offer additional capabilities to your customers.

Features & Benefits

  • Broad service coverage - Discount Pricing Plans apply to a wide range of special access services, which can be "mixed-and-matched" to meet your needs.
  • Easily scalable - You can increase the circuits you've committed to your Discount Pricing Plan at any time to respond to additional market demand in your territory.
  • Flexible usage - Your usage can fall within a range of your committed level, giving you the flexibility to respond to immediate market fluctuations.
