Rates & Fees

KanREN Service Rates & Fees for agreements signed from July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019. These rates were unanimously approved by the KanREN membership.

Starting July 1, 2018, the KanREN Board of Directors have chosen to end our practice of publishing all rates & fees publicly. They are still available to all members, and upon request for quotation to prospective members.


Institutions that wish to obtain connectivity services, and/or participate in governance and consortium activities must be members of KanREN.

Network Connectivity Services

Gigabit connectivity starting at $1,463/mo, including all KanREN distinctives, such as large blocks of IPv4 and IPv6 address space, QoS, DDoS protection and our outstanding member support. KanREN network connections are “full-rate”; we do not provide “up-to” speeds. More information available upon request.

Network Protection Services

Comprehensive unified threat management services start at $386/mo for up 1.5Gbps throughput. Includes Stateful Firewall, IDS/IPS, VPN (on-demand and site-to-site), Content filtering and more. Other services include blackhole DNS and remote vulnerability scanning. Contact KanREN for more information.

Cloud Networking Services

Cloud networking allows KanREN members to maintain all of their locations in a single administrative domain, but eliminate backhaul costs over expensive access circuits to a “main location” by creating a virtual upstream connection in the KanREN Cloud. Cloud networking is highly customized to individual needs, with pricing developed on an individual case basis.

NET+ Services

Virtual Machines

KanREN virtual machines are hosted on KanREN’s VMware clusters in Kansas City and Wichita. All KanREN VMs are custom built, with some standard resource options show below. Our VMs can be built with custom OSes or images, and since they’re hosted on our network, can all be configured with network integration not possible with remote cloud providers.

Medium (1VCPU, 2GB VRAM, 80GB storage):$500 one-time$45/mo

Additional Storage (per 40GB):$8.50/mo

Zoom Videoconferencing

KanREN manages state-wide licensing for Zoom videoconferencing, and supplies direct support for Zoom services. Services are hosted in the Zoom could, but have enhanced quality and reliability with KanREN network connectivity.

Per our agreement with Zoom, we cannot publish our prices outside of the membership. Please contact KanREN directly for pricing information.
