Receive 50% Off CTF Eligible Services
Fastmetrics participates in the California Teleconnect Fund (CTF) program, a program administered by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) that provides additional discounts to qualified organizations to offset the costs of covered Internet Access provided by eligible providers such as Fastmetrics. This discount is 50% on Internet Access.
The 50% discount is applied after any other discount, such as the Federal E-Rate Program, has been applied.
To qualify for CTF support a qualified organization must be located in California. Qualified organizations currently include schools, libraries, community colleges, community based organizations (including 2-1-1 providers) and healthcare CBOs.
