Nondiscrimination Policy

The purpose of the Oklahoma Community Anchor Network (OCAN) nondiscrimination policy is to ensure adherence to the principles contained in the FCC’s internet policy statement (FCC 05-151).

1. OCAN provides internet services to community anchor institutions (CAIs – educational organizations, health care, libraries, government agencies, public safety, and other nonprofit agencies) in an open, non-discriminatory manner. Any CAI within the OCAN service area is eligible to connect at reasonable rates and terms. OCAN does not make any distinction in its treatment of customer traffic based on application or content.

2. In some areas, OCAN may also provide other middle-mile services to private-sector middle-mile operators and wholesalers in an open, provider-neutral and nondiscriminatory fashion. Any middle- or last-mile provider or wholesaler within the OCAN service area is eligible to connect at reasonable rates and terms, at interconnection points where services are available.
