United States. In January 1969 ARPA awarded a contract to Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN) to design and construct a communications network. By the end of 1969, an experimental ARPANET was operational between four university nodes. The idea is based on Lawrence G. Roberts' 1966 publication, "Towards a Cooperative Network of Time-Shared Computers."
