Net News is a news broadcasting network that provides an alternative viewpoint to some events in the anime.
- In Layer 05, there is a report of problems in information transmission in the traffic control network, causing an accident. This appears to be linked with the incident in the same episode where Lain Iwakura's face appears on a large screen. It is likely to be the work of the evil Lain in the Wired.
- In Layer 10, the members list of the Knights of the Eastern Calculus was leaked to Net News. Taro, Masayuki and Myu-Myu are seen watching it.
