Chanute operates a multihomed autonomous network (ASN 36069) peered through fiber connections with two national Tier 1 Internet Access Providers (Lumen and Cox Communications). Connectivity to existing AT&T fiber is also available. These fiber connections are capable of delivering multi-Gigabit bandwidth to network participants. The City has its own direct allocation of both IPv4 and IPv6 address space reassignable to network participants.
For redundancy and even greater network reliability, the City has distributed its core network routers and operates a 10 Gigabit Metro Ethernet Loop between the hardened core facilities.
We currently have over 150 miles of fiber in our network, and connected to a Tier 1 internet provider namedLumen at their POP near Chanute at 10-Gigabit per second speed.
