Analyzing the logs of several very large ISPs. [Network Appliance makes 
NetCache, the most widely deployed commercial web cache product.] The 
amount of 'bytes transferred to users' is skewed towards a few sites, e.g. 
sites like geocities.com and yahoo.com. I can't give exact numbers, 
unfortunately but when I say 'a few' I mean less than 100, sometimes less 
than 30.

Rgds,
John
