The NB/PEI Educational Computer Network (ECN), founded in 1970, connects all of the universities in the eastern Canadian provinces of New Brunswick (NB) and Prince Edward Island (PEI).
The mission of the ECN consortium is to ensure high quality Information and Communication Technology (ICT) services for all their members.
Here is a map of eastern Canada which shows the location of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island in relation to the state of Maine and the provinces of Nova Scotia and Quebec.
"1970 October New Brunswick Educational Computer Network is formed, and later renamed the New Brunswick/Prince Edward Island Educational Network. It is still operating." - This quote is the very first entry in The Canadian Internet Timeline printed in the "Canadian Internet Handbook", 1995 edition, by Jim Carroll and Rick Broadhead, published by Prentice Hall Canada.
