Membership Overview

Schools, libraries, research facilities, public institutions, and business incubators are welcome to join Cybera to benefit from its many networking and above-the-network services.

Membership falls into two categories: those who are connected to CyberaNet, and those who are not connected but have joined to access Cybera’s other services. For a breakdown of the cost of membership, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
