Well.. yeah.. but my hypothetical 64 /8's are twice address space than
your hypothetical 2,097,152 /24's.
About the only conclusion that you can *safely* draw is that Sprint has a
more complicated network than UU does. Now *hopefully*, they have more
customers too, or the Sprint backbone engineers will have to carry a much
higher complexity/customer ratio, which means when the senior engineers finally
snap under the pressure, we'll get junior engineers making weird work-arounds
that will just complicate things 5 years down the road.
Oh wait.. that already happened at most carriers, didn't it? That's where we
got the CURRENT crop of senior engineers.. ;)
