Internet2, LambdaRail call off talks, go their separate ultra-fast ways
Well, it looks like we won't be seeing one massive, ultra high-speed Internet network anytime soon, as the AP is now reporting that Internet2 and National LambdaRail have called off their merger talks, with no indication given that they'll resume again. Apparently, Internet2 was initially ready to go ahead with the merger, despite a few hesitant board members, but LambdaRail was seeking some additional, unspecified concessions that ultimately led to both sides backing out. As the AP reports, the two non-profit networks had initially sought to work together given that they served the same community, but it now looks like they'll soon each be back to secretly plotting their next attempt at a new internet speed record.
