How much does it cost to connect to JerseyConnect?

UPDATE: Comcast has been unable to deliver service under the terms of the 470, so we will not be able to offer Comcast EVPL service. Please see our Network Access Pricing page for updated prices.

The information below is for historical reference only.

JerseyConnect is a free service provided by the New Jersey State Library, an affiliate of the Thomas Edison State University. Through JerseyConnect, there is no charge for WAN or Internet service.

However, libraries wishing to connect to JerseyConnect’s infrastructure require a transport circuit, available from Verizon or Comcast. This service is fully E-Rate eligible, and E-Rate assistance is available at no cost to libraries.

Please Note: The pricing below is PROPOSED by each vendor. JerseyConnect staff are still working with these vendors to finalize the contract details. Watch this site for more information as it becomes available!
