WiscNet Network Access

We want our members to use and grow into their full capacity at no additional WiscNet cost, therefore, for an annual fixed fee, WiscNet provides unlimited Internet transit. WiscNet does not measure Internet usage, nor do we set limits or cap the amount of data our member organizations use. WiscNet maintains an extremely high-speed, scalable and robust backbone that provides redundant core routing.  When member organizations increase Internet transport capacity, the annual WiscNet Network Access Service fee will not increase.
