FY20 Services and Fees - Public Libraries

Historically, the REAL program has fully funded the MCF for participating connected libraries. The elimination of this fee beginning in FY20 enables the State Library to repurpose REAL funds to further its support for bandwidth priorities of the REAL program.

These prices are effective from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.

Many valuable services are included with a Full or Basic Membership Service Package. Compare and contrast the two packages.

In addition to our Membership Service Packages, we provide Internet service. Find out more about our Internet service.

Network Connectivity Fee (NCF)

In keeping with our committment to bring you greater value, we've reduced the NCF for FY20.

The NCF is based on the bandwidth for each connection you receive from MOREnet. It covers the costs related to bringing member connections into the MOREnet backbone, Internet access, support of the MOREnet backbone, cybersecurity services and access to Internet2. These services are also included with a MOREnet connection:

  • Site router
  • Router management
  • Connection utilization information (MRTG and NetFlow)
  • After-hours connection monitoring
  • MOREnet members choosing to purchase connectivity through MOREnet have full access to network security and cyber security services. Any member choosing the non-connected option will access network security as part of their Membership Service Package
  • Vendor management and trouble repair coordination
  • Circuit procurement services, including bid development and vendor negotiations

Prices shown with the assumption of the REAL Program state subsidy. Any change in the REAL Program funding level for FY20 will change the pricing for which REAL members are responsible.

On termination of a member's Internet connection, all MOREnet-owned equipment must be returned. The member may be responsible for replacement fees for equipment that is not returned in a timely manner or that is damaged by the member.

Members with Internet connectivity through MOREnet receive all the benefits of being on the MOREnet network. In addition to the MOREnet backbone, an optical network that spans the entire state, members receive a router and all the support necessary to maintain your connection. You get your full, committed bandwidth, technical support should you have any problems and a host of other services like monitoring by MOREnet's security team.

Learn more about the benefits of having a MOREnet connection.

For FY20, based on need, as determined in coordination with MOREnet and the State Library, the State Library will provide each participating library (including currently enrolled branch libraries) with dedicated data connections according to the policy stated at http://www.more.net/content/real-policies. For FY20, the State Library will fund a participating library's net (after E-rate) circuit costs up to 500 Mbps. Participating libraries may request circuits larger than 500 Mbps and will be responsible for all additional costs, including any additional MOREnet network connectivity costs.
