[off-topic] old NSFNET regionals?

Sorry for the off-topic post.

BTW, many thanks for the responses on a San Diego interexchange point.
To summarize: CRL has a local access point that does FR and ATM up to
DS3 speeds, and PCH is building one "in the next 8 weeks or so".

Does anyone remember the NSF-sponsored regional networks? Can you fix
this table--this is off the top of my head so I am missing a few networks.

Name Region NOC was or is at Now

SURAnet Southeast US Univ MD BBN SER
NEARnet Northeast US MIT? BBN NER
PREPnet Pennsylvania PSC merged w/ CICnet
BARRnet Bay Area Stanford? Berkeley? BBN WR
CERFnet? South Calif SDSC TCG
CICnet Midwest ? merged w/ PREPnet
Merit Michigan U Mich
JvNCnet Middle states Princeton bought by verio
NYSERnet New York ?

Thanks,

Nah, they don't exist, just like the tooth fairy. :slight_smile:

You are missing NWnet, covering Pacific Northwest, with NOC at U of
Washington, which has also been bought by Verio.

There's also MIDnet, covering Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri etc, etc, which was
bought by Global Internet, and Sesquinet, covering Texas and parts of
southwest.
