Until now there was no additional cost for the service, it was covered by the UNINETT service fee for all UNINETT members. During 2016 this will be changed to an explicit cost-recovery model where each individual subscribing institution will be invoiced for using the service.
UNINETT members can order FileSender via the order form for eCampus services
The service is produced by UNINETT. Th local IT department at The University of Oslo (USiT) is responsible for the technical service delivery. Data is stored in USIT's data centres.
