Internal - yes .. (Though we're not a Fortune XYZ company we _are_
thinking of upgrading to 100Mbit - our internal backbone already runs
100Mbit.  I think this is quite common.)

External - no ..   (Not in DK at least - a simple 2Mbit sucks heavily in
the economic departement ... )

products.  This is not always the case ....  ;o)
