A National Science Foundation computer network on Wednesday began passing information among six supercomputer centers and researchers at nearly 200 universities.

The system, based in Ann Arbor, Mich., is operated by a consortium of Michigan universities. Said to be the fastest information network in the nation, it can transmit 1.5 million bits of information per second, the equivalent of 50 single-spaced, typewritten pages, the foundation said.
