I haven't seen the figures, but some of the traffic from Switzerland
comes from nic.switch.ch.
The Swiss Academic and Research network operates a fairly large anon FTP
server which mirrors many of the well known archives.
In March 93, about 3.2 GByte of a total consumption of 20 GByte went into
the direction of the NSFnet backbone. Most certainly a large amount of
that volume was made with files we got through the NSFnet.
