It was at Stirling University, and I was told it was called "the
internet".

A bit of rummaging turns up a Stirling Uni bulletin board printout
from 1990 discussing the JANET host naming scheme being reversed
"relative to the rest of the internet".

Until then, many UK addresses were of the form sam@uk.ac.stir.cs,
which caused no problems until Czechoslovakia (.cs) came online.
