Note to editors: NEARNET
and BARRNET are service marks of BBN Internet Services Corp.
We have long enjoyed a productive relationship with the NEARNET
and BARRNET staff -- a relationship that has been characterized by tremendous mutual respect.
Through its BARRNET and NEARNET
service areas, BBN will be Cisco's primary provider of high-bandwidth Internet connectivity.
In August, we acquired BARRNET, the leading provider of Internet access in Northern California and we also expanded our NEARNET
service from New England to metropolitan New York.
Gudonis said, "BBN Internet Services Corporation, through its NEARNET
and BARRNET operations, has already established itself as a premier domestic provider of Internet services.
