CCCOE Internet Service FAQs:

What overall costs will be incurred by the school or district office?

In addition to the annual connection charge to CCCOE.Net (which will partly defray the CCCOE's cost of staffing and telecommunications charges), the site will need the following equipment and services:

  • A router or L3 switch capable of handling the speed you choose to connect to CCCOE.NET.
  • An AT&T or Comcast Metro Ethernet circuit - Please call CCCOE.Net first before ordering new service through AT&T or Comcast.
