while most of us seem to remember traffic doubling every nine months or
a year (and some have memories of that being the meme then) ,
capacity build was massively above that level. think of the compound
rate one gets when one substitutes owned wet glass for a few leased
stm-1s. to quote a friend
if a network's capacity grows O(10**6) in 6 years, measured in
miles*gigabits/sec, how would you describe it?
 - we're seeing about 50% broadband growth a year in japan according
to thems that track, see Kenjiro Cho. "Broadband Traffic Report"
