E-Rate - The E-Rate is a telecommunications and Internet access discount plan for libraries, schools and rural health care providers. It arises out of Universal Service provisions of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, in particular the Snowe - Rockefeller amendments. Rules for implementation of discounts, ranging from 20% to 90% off the best regular price based on community economic conditions (measured by federal school lunch eligibility), have recently been announced by the Federal Communication Commission. Funds for the program -- up to $2.25 billion annually across the U.S. -- will become available in January, 1998. Availability of applications forms and procedures for handling them are still to be worked out. Details will be announced here as soon as they are known.

An education today is not complete unless it includes teaching children how to use computers and search the Internet. But in a busy classroom with several computers, how can a teacher ensure that students are not wasting time playing games or sending chat messages when they should be doing research? How can a teacher make sure that no student views an offensive site, even accidentally?

JNet's advanced proxy-free, server-based technology gives you full-speed Internet access with tamper-proof filtered internet access, updated daily. Our filtered internet access is flexible: you can choose a separate level of filtering for each Internet user, and you can filter audio, video, freeware, and shareware without completely blocking those categories.

And with our customized service, you can choose exactly what kinds of content to block for each employee or each computer. Each computer can have a different access profile, configured by the administrator. For example, one computer might access only e-mail, one only shopping sites, and a third the entire Internet except for pornography and game sites.

TheJnet for Business provides T-1, DSL, and dial-up connections; multiple e-mail and webmail accounts; and web site and broadcast hosting.

With JNet, there is no need to compromise either your Jewish values or your productivity when using the Internet.
