The four original nodes of ARPANET were the University of California, Los Angeles; Stanford Research Institute; University of California, Santa Barbara and the University of Utah. The fledgling network eventually grew into a worldwide service with part of the connections split with parts of the U.S. military. File Transfer Protocol, a service used regularly today, was first implemented on ARPANET.
ARPANET was decommissioned on February 28th, 1990.
