Absolutely. NSFNET kicked off in 1986/1987 and BARRNET was one of the early
regional networks along with NYSERNET (from which PSI was spun off),
NEARNET (which was operated by the team that became BBN Planet/Genuity),
and a handful of others.

Certainly SURANET and CICNET were around. I also remember MIDNET,
NORTHWESTNET, SESQUINET and maybe OARNET as being NSF regionals.
CERFnet was around, but not a regional.
