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).
