When the ARPANET was built, 56Kb lines were used - the leading edge
of technology of the day. The "New and Improved" network is proposed
to use 1.5Mbit lines (I assume T1). In keeping with the leading edge
philosophy of yore, the just erupting 45Mbit/sec technology (T3?) comes
to mind.

Any thoughts given to T3? After all, current experience with the ARPANET
tends to indicate that applications expand to fill the available bandwidth.

This is not a flame! merely a true question.
