Yes, we'd like to know, for example, what makes it difficult to order a trans-pacific T1, even if you could afford it; and; how to make your ISP business work in harmony on how these folks work. How about the converse -- how much of the international traffic is for TCP/IP, as opposed to other forms of data (private leased lines for companies), and voice? Finally, inter-AP circuits. The current WWW edition of Data Communications (http://www.data.com) opines that X.25 is still an important technology for connecting within AP. If leased lines were as easy to get, and a significant amount of traffic were say, for Australia (I have the raw data, but I think coorelating this with physical geography would be quite an exercise)), I would like to drive a circuit from Manila into Geoff's network (where's the geographical center?). On the other hand, if this is more of a political/legal issue, maybe APPLE would be a more appropriate venue for this discussion? -- miguel a.l. paraz <map at iphil dot net> iphil communications, makati city, ph PGP ID: 0x43F0D011 http://www.iphil.net isp/intranet design & implementation
