First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
In June 1971, the first two-way wireless transmission of data packets within a computer network was achieved at the Manoa campus, University of Hawaii, Honolulu . The ALOHANet was an experimental UHF radio network designed and implemented at the University of Hawaii at a time when the only other option for remote access to information resources was based upon the use of inflexible, slow, and unreliable telephone network connections.
