Organizations like KanREN can participate in the E-rate program in two different ways:
- They can file on behalf of their members as a consortium
- They can act as a service provider to their members
The KanREN membership has repeatedly decided that KanREN should act as an Internet Service Provider, and our SPIN number is 143005645. The KanREN consortium believes that this method allows individual institutions to best leverage their individual discount levels, rather than the averaging that would have to take place if we applied as a consortium.
As an E-rate Internet Service Provider, KanREN may not assist members in filling out or filing E-rate forms, but we can provide any information required for members to participate with KanREN as their provider.
For E-rate related information, please contact the KanREN business office at 785-856-9800.
