GLOBAL INTERNET ACCESS ENVISAGED

By CBR Staff Writer

European internet access provider EUnet, now based in Amsterdam, is joining forces with Internet Initiative Japan Inc to create a global internet connection linking the US, Europe and Asia, according to Nihon Keizai Shimbun. Users of the service will get internet access for the cost of a local phone call wherever the network touches down. It’s expected to be in place by July. Internet Initiative, Japan’s largest internet provider, operates point of presence in Japan, other parts of Asia and the US. EUnet has some 300-odd connection nodes in European cities, plus US outlets. The network will be especially useful for subscribers traveling overseas and will facilitate the creation of multinational intranets.
