Michiel,

Thank you for the information.  Could you let us know if XS4All's free  
v6 news feed went to zero, or was just dropped by some percentage?

I ask because the AMS-IX is frequently used as an example that v6 is  
being heavily adopted.  If it is all one source for one application,  
that is important information to the people fighting for v6 adoption.   
Going from peaks of 1.4 Gbps to 0.4 Gbps is impressive.  If that 0.4  
Gbps still includes some of your traffic, it is very impressive.

TTFN,
