in response to the "internets" being correct.From your own source www.internet2.org "Internet2 is a consortium being led by 207 universities working in partnership with industry and government to develop and deploy advanced network applications and technologies, accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet. Internet2 is recreating the partnership among academia, industry and government that fostered today´s Internet in its infancy. The primary goals of Internet2 are to:
* Create a leading edge network capability for the national research community
* Enable revolutionary Internet applications
* Ensure the rapid transfer of new network services and applications to the broader Internet community.
by that definition it is not a seperate network from the current internet, but rather a collective working to make the current internet better.
It would be ridicoulos to not run this over existing network lines. They are one in the same, and your proof debunked it's self.
"I heard some universities are making a new internet" "Not really, just working to improve the one we have."
