Cost

Each member of the network has to pay their share of the cost of the lines. NRC's cost for the 2000/2001 fiscal year for connecting to the Internet, BITS, CA*net 2 and CA*net 3 was $263,000.

NRC's allowed bandwidth on CA*net 2/3 is currently (March 2001) set to 5 Mbps with bursts (if the bandwidth is available) of up to 12 Mbps. The non CA*net 2/3 brandwidth available to NRC is 6 Mpbs with 12 Mpbs bursts.
