NaukaNet is Growing!
The NaukaNet network (formerly FASTnet) is in process of being upgraded to a 155 Mbps service between Starlight
in Chicago and Moscow. Due to the unexpected financial collapse of the
previous telecommunications carrier, Teleglobe, the previous 45 Mbps
network ceased operation on June 1, 2002. The NaukaNet team has been
working since that time on a new and much improved network service. Telia is the new carrier and should have the new circuit operational by July 20, 2002.

NaukaNet network should have capacity sufficient to carry the program
at least through the end of December, 2002 with no network congestion.
is a joint US-Russian project to provide
next generation Internet services to
collaborating US-Russian scientists and
goals include assisting meritorious
scientific collaborations requiring
advanced, high performance Internet
services; connecting the Russian next
generation Internet network to the US vBNS
and other next generation networks in the

encouraging and supporting productive
cooperation between the US and Russian
