A year ago, the US held 1324.93 million addresses out of a total of 2238.04 million = 59.2% (apparently I rounded off incorrectly with my 60% figure). Yesterday's total is 2407.11 so for the US to maintain its 59.2% it would have to hold 1425 million addresses, which is an increase of exactly 100 million addresses. But the US didn't get 100 million addresses last year, but "only" 41.66 million for a total of 1366.53 (56.8%). So the US keeps growing, and still uses up a quarter of the new addresses given out in 2006, but the rest of the world grows faster so the US lead is diminishing.
