Signing up is easy. You will start by creating an EAN account and then (using that account) select your EAN equipment and options. Once your order has been placed and monthly billing has been setup, your equipment will be available for you to pick up or shipped to your service address. Individuals without access to the internet or a computer may sign-up using a computer at any public library, at their school, or by coming in to the EAN office. We are located at 504 Cohodas Hall on the campus of Northern Michigan University.
The educational partnership allows the subscriber to gain access to the EAN at a reduced monthly fee. The monthly fee is dependant on the type of partner you are. K-12 partners can access for as low at $19.95 per month, alumni and veterans can access for as low as $24.95 per month. The service may be cancelled at any time but the equipment lease fee ($60 per year paid annually) can not be refunded after 30 days. Users in more remote areas may purchase indoor or outdoor LTE devices that provide a strong signal and better service. Users will be advised which device best suits their location when signing up for the service.
No, the EAN does not enforce data caps or slow your service down after a certain amount of data is reached.
No, the EAN is month-to-month. You can cancel at any time without penalty. If you purchase or lease equipment, you will need to cancel your service within the first 30 days to get a full refund for the equipment.
EAN registered users can select LTE equipment that allows you to connect to the EAN network. Some LTE equipment, like the hotspot or indoor unit come with a built-in wireless router allowing standard wireless devices to connect to it and access the network. The outdoor unit requires a separate router to provide wireless service within the home.
Internet service supplied on the EAN for K-12 students is filtered in compliance with the FCC's CIPA (Child Internet Protection Act) requirements.
Yes, the educational partnership for the EAN requires a yearly renewal so you will need to provide proof that you are still a student.
