Cyberspace Communication's mission is to provide free access to Internet services and to support open, public discussion forums. We keep Grex's costs to about US$150 per month by using modern equipment and colocation and lots of volunteer work, but we still need to bring in some money to pay for Internet connectivity, phones, electricity, and rent and to keep the system growing. We charge no fees for our services and run no advertisements on our system. We have no government funding and no large corporate sponsors. All our money comes from voluntary donations from our charitable users like you. If you can afford to donate something to help us, we hope you will do so.

The best way to help support Grex is to become a member. Benefits include:

Paying Dues by Check or Money Order

Membership dues are US$2 per month or US$18 per year. You can send a check payable to "Cyberspace Communications" or "Grex" to

Cyberspace Communications, Inc.
P.O. Box 4432
Ann Arbor, MI 48106-4432 (USA)

Be sure to tell us your Grex login name. If you pay other than by personal check, please include a photocopy of some ID. (As a membership organization, the law requires that we be able to identify our members, but we do not publicize your identity.)

If you are paying for three months or more, you can request a free copy of our Wizard in Training user handbook.

Paying Dues by Credit Card

You can pay membership dues by credit card by buying them through the Grex store shopping cart system.

Important Notes:

  1. Be sure to include your Grex login in the comments area in your order so we can figure out which of the thousands of accounts on Grex needs to be given member status!
  2. If you are paying for three months or more, you can use the comments area to request one free copy of our Wizard in Training user handbook.
  3. If the name on the credit card is not your own, and you are starting a new membership, then you still need to send us a photocopy of other ID, as described above.

You can pay on a monthly basis, or save some money and pay annually. Select the number of months or years you want below, click the appropriate "Add to Shopping Cart" button, and then click the button to purchase shopping cart contents.

Credit card processing is currently down. To become a member right now, please mail in check. Thanks for understanding.
