Terminating a VXC

You can terminate a VXC directly from the Megaport Portal.

VXCs can be individually terminated or are terminated as part of terminating the attached Port, MCR, or MVE. VXCs attached to Ports that are set to terminate in 30 days are terminated when the Port is terminated.

Terminating a VXC on a contract term will result in an early termination fee (ETF) equivalent to 100% of the remainder of the term. For more information on VXC contract terms, see VXC Pricing and Contract Terms.


Terminating an MVE automatically deletes all of its associated VXCs, including the Megaport Internet connection. For more information on terminating an MVE, see Terminating an MVE.
