On March 29, 1994 the Philippines, including U.P. Diliman was first connected to the internet.

As of March 29,1994 at 1:15 am Philippine time, unfortunately 2 days late due to slight technical difficulties, the Philippines was FINALLY connected to the Internet via SprintLink. The Philippine router, a Cisco 7000 router was attached via the services of PLDT and Sprint communications to SprintLink's router at Stockton CA. The gateway to the world for the Philippines will be via NASA Ames Research Center. For now, a 64K serial link is the information highway to the rest of the Internet world.

As to domestic connections, the following institutions will be the initial points of regional presence within the archipelago:

  • Ateneo de Manila University 
  • Advanced Science and Technology Institute 
  • De La Salle University 
  • UP Diliman 
  • UP Los Banos 
  • UP Manila 
  • University of San Carlos, Cebu 
  • University of Sto. Tomas 
  • St. Louis University, Baguio 
  • Xavier University, Cagayan
