Have you been bought by a telco yet?

What's up with this statistic?

"The merger of ICG and Netcom offers a strategic
fit across-the-board in technology, target markets
and geography ," said J. Shelby Bryan, president
and CEO of ICG, in a statement. "The new
company will enjoy a particularly strong competitive
advantage in California, where approximately 30
percent of the world's Internet traffic either
originates or terminates."

I'd believe 30 percent of the US's Internet traffic either originates,
terminates, or is exchanged between providers in CA, and another 20-30%
in the NYC<->DC corridor, heavily weighted towards DC, of course.
