Okay I have to add my 2 cents in.  Here is the scary part.  I have a friend 
that works for eli (they are a hug company that sells high speed bandwidth 
to ISP) and he says the rule that most ISP use is a 10 to 1 ratio.  Meaning 
that for every 1 IP brought from ELI and sold to the ISP that ISP will have 
10 clients.  Other words they have 10 clients for 1 IP they have.  Isn't 
this scary!  An ISP having 100 IPs mostly likely has 1000 clients!  Those 
clients are you and me!
