Commission staff has prepared a graphical snapshot of this 2011 data, available at http://fcc.github.io/calltraffic/traffic2011.html. For a snapshot of how international traffic has changed over the last ten years, staff has prepared a depiction of international traffic data in a graphical interface, available at http://fcc.github.io/calltraffic/trafficbyyear.html.
