Patrick (and others), Not wearing any particulair hats, just responding as one of the net citizens who happened to be involved in reviewing this questionaire. The question was raised on how to categorize the organisations, you can come up with many diffferent views and hundreds of options and you have to make choices. Personally I think the hosting/registar business can be qualified as an ISP as you are in fact offering internet services. In response to the other point "Please indicate for every service if your organization has it deployed now" I think, in the end, the "peering" should have disappeared from that list as, IMHO, it ain't a service as suc, the same goes for "buying transit". I now think maybe there should have been a question on "connectivity" in general, with a couple of options such as buy/peer/both. In response to Mark, I think the same reason applies as with the organisation thing. You can come up with hundreds, maybe thousands of reasons which can be blocking. You have to keep it short and there is after all room for free form comments. Please keep in mind that this is aimed at thousands of organisations and people and should give some generic insight in what people are planning for and what the main reasoning is behind it. And yes, I personally, don't expect this survey to produce any results different from what is known already from other studies.
