Neither OneNet nor any other component of the Oklahoma Government Telecommunications Network shall be assessed any fee or other charge for the support of universal service.

B. No provider of Internet service or any company providing telecommunications services or its affiliate or subsidiary, may price such Internet service in an anticompetitive, discriminatory, or predatory manner or subsidize the price of Internet service with revenues received from other services. No governmental agency or entity using or being eligible to use OneNet facilities may price such Internet services in an anticompetitive or predatory manner. Any governmental agency or entity using OneNet facilities is hereby prohibited from reselling OneNet access directly to the general public at any nonpublic site. Any company or individual damaged from a violation of this subsection by a private company or individual shall be entitled to treble damages. The Attorney General shall be responsible for bringing an action for violation of this section against a private company or individual.
