The truly global internet

I'm downloading the latest Linux via BitTorrent, a peer to peer system
that shares the responsibility for sending the data among all the peers.
On a whim, I decided to find out about the peers that are sending me the
data; here is the info for the top 6 sources, which are responsible for
sending me most of what has been downloaded so far.

The most interesting thing is the location of the peers.  In the info
below the command host <ip-address> gives the URL for the specified IP
address.  Visible countries are:
	si: Slovenia
	it: Italy
	au: Australia
The other sources, net and edu, are probably though not necessarily
North American.

Truly the internet is global.
