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.

For FY18, 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 FY18, 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.
