Shared Network

Shared Network

In 1994, the State of Missouri charted a course to provide funding for MOREnet to connect schools and libraries to the Internet. State funding for  higher education institutions was then added, making Missouri one of the first states in the country to fund a comprehensive, cost-effective, shared network for K-12, higher education and public libraries.

This shared network has proven to be an efficient and cost-effective approach to meeting the growing bandwidth demands of the members and combined with the centralized statewide services, creates significant cost savings not only for the consortium, but for Missouri taxpayers as well.
