WiscNet E-Rate Eligible Services
WiscNet E-Rate Eligible Network Access
WiscNet sets the WiscNet Network Access fee based only on mission and size of WiscNet member organizations. A corresponding network participation fee schedule exists for all current and prospective WiscNet Members. By doing so, WiscNet has eliminated bandwidth metering. We do not measure Internet usage, nor do we set limits of cap the amount of data member organizations use. We want our members to use and grow into their full capacity at no additional WiscNet cost. For an annual fixed fee, WiscNet provides unlimited internet transit. We encourage you to review your current (and historic) usage at http://nrg.wiscnet.net/nrg and plan accordingly.
We invite you to remain a WiscNet member by selecting WiscNet as your E-Rate funded Internet access provider. WiscNet will send our single-year quote for the Internet access services requested in your Funding Year 2017 (July 2017 - June 2018) Form 470 submitted to the Schools and Libraries Division. If you have any questions, please contact WiscNet.
