I am trying to compile comparative rate tables for

- the cost of 64kb digital service in various countries
- the cost of a 56/64kb link to the USA or a T1 line to the USA

If you can help me fill in the gaps or have information about a country I
have not included, please send it to me. Once I have finished the work,
I will repost the final result.

Please reply directly to me and not to the list.

Thanks,
Hank
