If you want to provide eduroam to your guests, but not to your own users, you can sign up as a "Service Provider Only." For this option, contact ANYROAM directly.
4. Determine your eduroam subscription Fee
- One-time Registration Fee - There is a $700 one-time registration fee for all eduroam subscribers, including Internet2 members. However, if your institution signs the agreement with no changes, we will waive this fee.
- Internet2 Higher Education members do not pay the eduroam subscription fees; eduroam is available as a member benefit to those organizations. Internet2 Higher Education members still must sign an eduroam Connector Agreement.
- Subscription Fees for organizations that are not Internet2 Higher Education members
- $0.10 (10 cents) per user per year, based on the "total enrollment" number from your IPEDS data (http://nces.ed.gov/ipeds). The minimum annual fee is $400.
- Organizations without IPEDS data will be billed based on the self-reported total number of students or employees
