Internet Services

CEN’s unique, 2500 route mile, all optical, high-performance network provides internet service to organizations of all sizes in every Connecticut community. Established to meet the rigors of research and education, CEN has the capacity and engineering performance to support high-bandwidth applications like distance learning, large-scale data transfers, video conferencing, virtual laboratories and digital libraries.

CEN is an open-access network available to any Connecticut organization.

Much more than a traditional ISP, CEN offers a suite of included services and a la carte offerings to meet the needs of our members now and well into the future.

Blue box with quote that reads: I have been a CEN customer for over two years and never had a problem with the internet service. I have to say this is the best internet service that I have ever had in twenty years. We are pleased with the speed of the service (1 GB Fiber Optic) which, is faster than many other places I use, but the service from CEN, is exceptional, in keeping the service available, especially when compared to my previous service providers. All this, and competitive costs as well. Thanks, CEN! Luis Martinez Director of Technology, Notre Dame High School
