Ja Net

JANET is the The Joint Academic NETwork. It is the national data network which connects universities and other academic centres around the UK to each other, to other global networks and, occasionally, to Oxford.

After ARPANET, the first main network to form what became The Internet. Really? Ja Net didn't even start an IP service until 1991, by which time Arpa Net didn't even exist any more, and several other networks were connected.
