The Great Exchange

Our current average suggests about 10% of our total traffic volume stays
within the Austin metro area. I suspect that this may climb as
high as 15% with more of the population on the net as a percentage of
the total population, and due to the several examples I have of
the direct competative advantage of local peering for local providers
and local content offerings.
At least until the social basis for communication changes to the extent
that people prefer to talk to people they don't know v. people they
do know.
