The Unlimited DSL 3 month plan gives you even more value for money. It costs $39 for 3 months access at
the Unlimited DSL level. That works out to be $13 per month only! You are rebilled every 3 months and
must utilize all 3 months worth of access. If you cancel before your 3 months is up, your account will
remain active until the end of the 3 month period. We do not offer pro-rated refunds for unused portions
of your account.

will take longer to complete.
