The people on nanog are not typical. I looked around for statistics
and didn't find much, but it looks like only a few percent of numbers
are ported each month, and it's often the same numbers being ported
I'd also expect to find a lot more porting in the highly competitive
wireless industry than in the monopolistic wireline biz.
