Hi, Raymond --

We see similar changes to traffic in the internet exchange world when  
someone changes their connection from 1GE to 10GE.  Before they turn  
up additional sessions, they often peer more traffic, which I  
attribute to sliding window doing its thing, and eventually user  
behaviour altering.

It's encouraging that your customers' internet performance experiences  
are improving - do share your upgrade stories with other providers in  
your region !

Best wishes,
