Not-for-profits get OK to hook up to county computer network

Share This

District 4 County Commissioner Steven L. Abrams of Boca Raton, chairman of the Palm Beach Broadband Coalition, has announced the approval of agreements allowing three local not-for-profit groups to connect to the county computer network at reduced rates.

These agreements provide the Kravis Center, the Palm Beach County Health Care District and the Children’s Services Council access to high speed broadband connectivity to the Internet, the Internet 2 Research Network, as well as access to state-owned disaster recovery data centers via a direct connection to the Palm Beach County Regional Network and the state wide Florida-LambdaRail network, which is owned and operated by ten Florida universities.

“This is a program that will offer local not-for-profits, governmental and educational agencies an affordable opportunity to interconnect with the county’s network- benefiting them and generating much-needed revenue for the county,” Abrams said.

“I hope these are just the first of many groups who will take advantage of this opportunity,” he added.

Attaching to the county’s regional network typically provides eligible organizations a 300 percent increase in bandwidth at about 30 percent of the cost.

Other participants include local municipalities, the Palm Beach County School District, the South Florida Water Management District, Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College.
