Needs more dates[edit]

Surely Japan had Internet service before 1999. This article needs to go back further in time, and date each event by at least the year. — Walloon 07:37, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

-- TWICS was apparently first, and Niftyserve apparently started in 1989. JANIS in Nagano was another early pioneer. Global On-Line (GOL), started by Roger Boisvert, was another. LittleBen (talk) 22:39, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Citations?[edit]

All this information is great, but it would be nice to have something to back it up with. I also don't know how to add the "Cite sources" tag. :/ - 129.237.76.69 16:34, 13 November 2007 (UTC)

WP:Japan Assessment Commentary[edit]

The article was rated Stub-class because it's a complete mess that provides very little useful information. There is no introduction, or it was deleted, so that the starting sentence is like some random point in a larger article. Furthermore, the article is riddled with internet-specific jargon with no explanation or context. There is very little in the way of time frame; sources are sorely lacking. Good luck to whomever eventually tries to improve it. Boneyard90 (talk) 19:07, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
