CEN Member Benefits 

CEN is much more than an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Any Connecticut organization can connect to CEN, and in so doing, profit from a wealth of member benefits unlike any other ISP.

Blue box with quote that reads: I just wanted to say a big thank you. We have been with CEN for about five years now and not only has the service been phenomenal, but the prices dropping each and every year has been wonderful as well. If my notes are correct, you have reduced the MB/month rate by more than 50% just over the last year. Nice work and thank you. D.J. Plante Director of Technology, Hopkins School
 Blue box with quote that reads: We've been a CEN member for over a decade, and it's one of the best partnerships we have. The value of being a member continues to increase as the CEN team is always looking for ways to improve their service. The non-commercial nature of the network means that the focus is on the members, and the team at CEN are friendly, professional, and above all, helpful.
