RE: Trans-Atlantic Traffic
According to http://www.switch.ch/switch/lan/stat/linkusa.html , the average data rates on our transatlantic links over the last year was around 2260 kbps inbound (eastbound) and 1250 kbps outbound. The links have been upgraded from 2 E1s to 4 E1s during that time. We are one of the smaller European research networks - numbers from e.g. the German WIN or the Scandinavian NORDUnet will be much higher. There are many of these small links over the pond. I'd be interested in whether (and if so: how) different providers manage to save costs by sharing fast transcontinental lines among themselves. -- Simon.
