Rather it connected via a 56kbps link to the node at UIUC. The link was later upgraded to T1 until MRNet migrated to CICNet. A different form of the question is: Where were the NSFNET backbone nodes located? There was an odd mapping between backbone nodes and regionals, (e.g., some sites which hosted NSFNET backbone nodes created regionals, other sites didn't, and some regionals, typically those formed later, didn't have their "own" backbone nodes). -tjs - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
