The contracts are for month-to-month services and do not require the user to commit to lengthy terms or order to receive the contracted rates. These contracts also offer flexibility in that they provide a variety of technologies and services and bandwidth options ranging from 768k in urban and rural locations up to 155mb download data rates.
Localities will find these contracts beneficial since sourcing has been completed without you expending resources and time to manage the competitive bid process.
