September 2020, at 13:00 EDT (18:00 UTC) *Internet2
<https://internet2.edu/>* hosts an Internet History Webinar: '*How the US
NSFNET Regional Academic Networks Evolved to Become the Global Internet
(1985 — 1995) <https://internet2.edu/internet2-internet-history-webinar/>*'.

The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) *NSFNET Program
funded a range of (academic) regional networks1, starting in 1985/86. Over
a relatively short period of time, the regional networks developed their
customer base and funding models and became Internet service providers
(ISPs). Connections to the Federal Internet Exchange(s) (FIXs) and the
Commercial Internet eXchange(s) (CIXs) were developed, and some of the
regional networks evolved to become global ISPs.

The webinar will feature short presentations from some of the Regional
Network / ISP pioneers, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A session.
