The way I understand policy 2002-3, is it's design is to give smaller ISP's in 
North America some relief. (This would also impact on the African Region of 

I know what the smaller ISP's go through (from an African perspective of 
course), so in this sense I would support the proposal.

As Calvin Browne mentioned, I don't have ENOUGH of a grasp on how/what the 
American Internet politics are like, but I do understand the plight of the 
"little guy"....

Based on this understanding alone, I would support 2002-3. But I also support 
2003-15, since it directly impacts on African ISP's...

If BOTH can get passed, we ALL win ! I don't however see that 2002-3 and 
2003-15 should be linked in any way. 

Any other takers for helping not just ourselves, but the Americans as well 
(since they ARE trying to help us in return) ?

One last question though, is it too late to add another proposal ? Once that 
would include maybe a combination of the best parts out of both proposals? 
(just thinking of increasing all of our chances to get what we want/need 
passed without delay)

Every word is like an unnecessary stain on silence and nothingness.
