Again, if you're operating a wholesale/retail-DSL ISP, then:
- It's *impossible* for any localised traffic to exist
- So you'll never see it
- So you'll *never know* how much of the P2P and BT traffic you see
/could/ have been shared locally
I'd love to know if there's data on file-sharing on shared-ethernet
cable ISPs anywhere (ratios of local traffic to traffic that goes
past the head particularly), that'd help this debate a lot.
