Region 13 has always been an unofficial source of technical support to its Internet Access Service Customers. Due to many requests and much interest, we’ve added a more in depth service to better support those district’s needs. Our goal is to help districts by providing expertise, and or supplementing the expertise already in house. The purpose of this document is to help draw a distinction between what we provide for free, and what needs to be provided through an upgrade to our Priority Technical Support Services.
