Center for Information Technology Services
Internet Access From $6.95 a Month!
The plan is to offer as an alternative a single vendor solution for various levels of Internet service at the best possible prices. But until a single vendor is identified who meets all of the UMB community's expressed needs, a variety of specially discounted service packages from qualifying providers are offered, from which students, faculty and staff may wish to choose.
To see the results of the CITS analysis, students should log on to the secure part of the SURFS web page at http://simsweb.umaryland.edu/ and click on "Internet Service Providers." Faculty and staff may access the same information from a link on the CITS Web Page at http://www.umaryland.edu/cits.

Examples of completed initiatives which have enhanced operations and services at the University include:
