The last I heard about this (I work at one of the Canadian Universities),
was that CA*Net2 is 'research+university only', while CA*Net3 was/is
supposed to be 'research+university+commercial'...

At the university I'm at, we have two links...one to CA*Net2 for those
working with other X-Canada universities, and then the "regular" Internet
for everything else...

CA*Net3, if/when it becomes available (we don't have it yet) is to merge
the two back into one thing again...or so I understood it.

I could be wrong...this is stuff I talked to a friend of mine about almost
a year ago...things change *shrug*
