I have seen 30-50% savings on some networks when patch Tuesday hits. Its
not achievable on a vanilla squid though and needs some code magic.
With general traffic the savings tend to be around the 10-20% mark.
Unforunately much of the stuff you really want to cache like your
YouTube vids is intentionally filled with cookies that make it
un-cachable. This is done intentionally for copyright compliance and
various other things.
