Fair enough, I am quoting the newspapers. They recently ran an article about MAE-E, and made the claim that nearly 1/3 of all internet passes through MAE-E. I did not question this revelation... Perhaps I should have. After all, it made it into print, it *can't* be wrong! ;) Unless you mean the 20%, in which case it is pure conjecture. When *I* see MAE-E go lossy, it is typically around 20%. I have no idea why "The Loss" favors this number. Or, even if other carriers hover about 20% when MAE-E goes lossy.... Food for thought though........ Cheers. > > -dorian
