I am very sorry to appear as a trouble maker once more but I have very serious
doubts about the accuracy of the traffic figures below with respect to the
countries served by the CERN-Cornell T1 line in november 1992.

With regard to October 92, we measures 34 GBytes for traffic US<-->NL for
example, which is twice as much as what is indicated below, and I can
give other examples, e.g. Italy, Switzerland, Austria where the statistics
below appear to be seriously wrong, i.e. by a factor 2 at least!

The only explanation I can offer is that the CERN-Cornell line was still
connected to the NSFnet T1 backbone last month, as was also the case for
CA*NET, which probably explain why CANADA is less active than Iceland,
whereas I remember Canada ranking 2nd some time ago!

I personally have nothing against Iceland or Lapeland, but I hope that
the december 92 figure will be more accurate, following the dismantling
of the T1 backbone on december 2.

Since any traffic statistics, in particular the intercontinental ones,
may be exploited for purposes other than purely technical ones, I would
very much appreciate that due mention of the possible inaccuracy of the
traffic figures for some European countries be explicitely and publicly
mentioned.

With my advance thanks.

Let me also take this opportunity to wish you all a merry xmas and a very
happy new year.
