The customer must pay all recurring and nonrecurring charges for the services being terminated through the date of termination.
  • Additional services may be added to the customer's commitment, at the rate for services permitted hereunder, and the term with respect to those similar tariffs from CenturyLink at the same time as the termination of services which has a price equal to 115% of the then remaining amount of the services being terminated.
