Struggling to see any jump on our port graphs (since DECIX is a dual
stack) .. so its definitely sub-gigabit :)

Btw, of that 450Mb on AMSIX we're not any significant part of it.. I
heard on the grapevine its either news or p2p traffic but not sure if
thats accurate.

Arnold, any ideas what the bulk of the v6 on DECIX is, presumably its
of a similar make up to AMSIX..?
