Going first-class on the Internet

, : Going first-class on the Internet. Science 271: 75

The National Science Foundation is to set up a program that will fund high-performance links from campuses and laboratories to its high-speed Internet backbone. The program will favor schemes that seek to upgrade and cut through the congestion on the existing Internet. The program will benefit scientists who want to exchange a lot of data in a hurry, a task which is at the moment slow and subject to delays. This is particularly frustrating for those hoping to establish distant collaborations or to control instruments remotely over the Internet.
