A few facts I've picked up that seem to get little mention.

The IMP's were fed with an inverse mux & that with modems from Ma. (I've
never read how many modems fed each mux.) It was quite a while before She
was able to provide better data connectivity than that to customers.

There were several isolated networks, for operational reasons but also
because the IMP's had a hard limit of ?255/256? addresses.
