Computer NBME and Unreliable Internet !

I am going to take an NBME but the problem is i have a very unreliable internet connection.
What happens if in between the blocks i get disconnected from the internet will the test get suspended automatically or i will again have to subscribe and pay for it
Please respond soon i will be taking it in few hours from now.
Also about the expanded feedback i know they tell you the wrong questions answered but upto what time are those questions available. Is it gone after i log out after giving the test

Hey I dont know about the internet but the answers are available for some time. I could check them 10 days after I did the NBME.
