UNINETT’s annual service fee for customers in the higher education sector

All universities and state university colleges that have UNINETT as their Internet service provider, i.e. institutions that are connected to the research and education network, pay an annual service fee. In addition to Internet access, this fee also covers a variety of other services.


Annual service fees paid by UNINETT’s customers cover approx. 50% of UNINETT’s costs associated with the operation and development of the research and education network. The rest is covered by grants from the Ministry of Education and Research, as well as by invoicing other customers outside of our main target group for actual network use. 

The service fee covers access to and use of the research and education network. In addition, customers gain access to a number of other services included in the fee.
