In response to requests from participants, the Illinois Century Network now offers cost effective filtering services.

Filtering is the process of restricting users from accessing inappropriate Internet sites while allowing access to desired sites. While filtering is not required for participation in the ICN, constituents often request it to more easily comply with federal e-rate requirements or meet other needs.
