As the demand for technology grows, so does our commitment to keep costs low and value high. Thanks to your membership, your MOREnet consortium continues to grow and expand further into Missouriâ€™s academia and public sector organizations.
As always, a connection with us includes:
- Your full, committed bandwidth
- Technical support
- Security monitoring and cybersecurity consulting
- Good Net Neighbor
- BlackHole Domain Name Service
- Negotiating with tail-circuit vendors on your behalf
- Annual USAC filing and net-e-Rate invoicing for all E-rate eligible members
We will continue to research and invest in connectivity solutions that enable higher bandwidth, lower costs and increased network flexibility. This includes monitoring and leveraging federal funding programs as well as fostering statewide and regional partnerships that can help us better meet your specific needs.
In the coming year, we will invest in several more enhancements to support multiple 100 Gbps links, allowing us to continue providing robust and reliable connectivity that you have come to expect- even as annual member bandwidth growth continues to outpace each previous yearâ€™s growth.
Even with continued upgrades, we are excited to once again reduce the annual Network Connectivity Fee (NCF) for FY17. Prices for FY17 are available here; notice that some bandwidth tiers have been reduced by as much as 10 percent.
