Like reported earlier in this and last year, some major universities have banned usage of Napster because it takes too much of their bandwidth. Now Napster Inc. announced that it is currently working to solve the problem and is suggesting the following model; in future versions Napster would first try to find the files inside the campus network, secondly it would try to find the files from so called "Internet 2" which is faster Internet that many universities are already members of.
