Subject: Internet capacity Japan - US exceeds phone capacity
At a recent Information Infrastructure workshop, Kenichi Kawaguchi
pointed out that the transmission capacity between Japan and the US for
Internet services (650 Mb/s) now significantly exceeds that for
telephony (400 Mb/s). See
I'd be interested in similar statistics from other places.

I beleive that this is true for Australia as of early this year (Geoff
Huston postited as much in Memphis) and both PacBell and AADS are making
similar claims. I've heard rumors that the curve is near crossover
within MCI and Sprint as well.
