In response to the *smart* comments (not repeated here), the percentages
given are of external traffic only.  The 2% not accounted for is due to
rounding down the results. I suppose I can do it to more decimal places if
you really want it.  Also we do retain lots of our own traffic, but I felt
it was irrevalent for the purposes of this discussion, so retained traffic
was not included in the calculations.

DataXchange                sales:  800-863-1550            http://www.dx.net

DataXchange purchases transit from uunet, mci & sprint.  But we also
aggressively try to peer with those who wish to peer.  Gary, you are wrong
to say that 90% of traffic is for uunet, mci or sprint.  I have the
statistics on my own network to prove this.  Typically we see a breakdown
like this:  

MCI                       22%
Sprint                     7% 
UUNET                     21% 
all other (via peering)   48%

In our opinion since only 52% of the traffic has its best routing thru
uunet, sprint & mci, bi-lateral peering is definately worthwhile.
