 Response to Dennis Perry:
         In 1983 the Telenet public network cost in the neighborhood of 85 -
 100 million dollars/year. This included development, PAD support, and
 interest on debt.
         About a year ago the Telenet public net handled about 1.5 billion
 user data packets /month. This does not include layer 3RR packets, which would
 be the equivalent of TCP acknowledgments, retransmittals of dropped packets,
 or network maintenance (GGP packets).
