Perhaps around 25% for a "moderate"-sized organizition, but as low as 5% is not unreasonable for regionals and locals.

The proble with interest from most of this A couple days a couple time a year of manual testing and tweaking for "most important" prefixes usually does the trick. Considering industry instability, one probably changes an upstream about as often as one would tune anyway. Considering the difficulty one often has finding a clued rep, one probably spends more time educating sales reps than tuning traffic. ;-) Eddy -- Brotsman & Dreger, Inc. - EverQuick Internet Division Bandwidth, consulting, e-commerce, hosting, and network building Phone: +1 785 865 5885 Lawrence and [inter]national Phone: +1 316 794 8922 Wichita _________________________________________________________________ DO NOT send mail to the following addresses : [email protected] -or- [email protected] -or- [email protected] Sending mail to spambait addresses is a great way to get blocked.
