There is no source cited, and based on news articles, this happened in 2009/2010, not April 2011. "In April 2011 Verizon helped Janet upgrade 4 central locations to run at 100Gbit/s - the first national research and education network in the world to do so." What about Internet2? I see on their wiki page that they had 100gbit in the backbone as early as 2006. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:12, 19 April 2011 (UTC)
- There were trials of the 100Gb/s technology in 2009/2010, and it was deployed on the production network in 2011. I believe that Internet2's 100Gb/s links were bundled 10Gb/s circuits, these refer to single 100Gb circuits. Jamesd (talk) 11:19, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Backwards domain names
So what I remember about Janet, circa 1993, is the backwards domainnames you had to use: uk.co.bbc, uk.co.archive. Perhaps it was just the UK ones. But does anyone else remember this. If so is it worth a note on this page? Preferably with a reason - which escapes me - to why this was. --Ooblick 21:41, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
- It was so mandated by Coloured Book. I've added a note to this page. The Wednesday Island 17:34, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Relation to Alvey would be useful
The relation to Alvey especially when intellectual property was concern needs to be detailed. -- enm 23:30 18 Aug 2006 (UTC)
- The only reliable source I can find about relationships between JNT and Alvey are with regards to funding of the initial US/UK/JANET/NSFnet link, and a contribution to the JANET Rainbow Books Jamesd (talk) 12:36, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
- ATM disappeared around the time of SJ4, before my time though I'm afraid. Jamesd (talk) 12:26, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
- The former is a network, the latter is the organisation running it.--Jotel (talk) 17:22, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
What helped make Janet successful?
Is "Socialism" really a valid link from this page? It is a government-funded entity, but to link to "Socialism" seems rather political... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 00:14, 16 November 2008 (UTC)
Was Janet a backronym?
- I've seen various "sources" that say it was the name of the founder's secretary, yes. I don't know if there are any reliable sources around to back this up though. ~~ [ジャム][t - c] 19:32, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
- The official line is that it's from the Joint Academic NETwork, and that it was merely an amusing coincidence that the JNT secretary at the time was Janet. See http://www.ja.net/documents/publications/janet-history/janet-the-first-25-years.pdf page 75. Jamesd (talk) 12:32, 22 June 2011 (UTC)
Did it really start that late
I started using an X25 network in 1981-2 and I am sure it was Janet. I was at Reading uni doing a PhD and there was a large cube of a computer a GEC4040, if I remember correctly, in the physics dept that was a node for Janet. I had a 2.4kbaud link to that machine from my office. I think that Janet was available in 1981 and certainly 1982. I used to link up to a DEC10 in Glasgow Strathclyde university using a program called ESP in the ABACUS dept.
