Most networks have some sort of firewall (hopefully...)

Isn't CERNET kind of similar to Internet2/NLR?
Members own their network
Free to join
Serve education&research community
Members encourage their users to use "the free network" instead of public
network when possible

Please correct me if I am wrong.
