Yes, works the same in all Countries. Layers 1,2,3 of the OSI Stack. I guess
what I should have said was Subnet.

Correct there. Classless Inter Domain Routing, never really got into doing
that. Largest I have dealt with was 1500 nodes and cidr is not needed there.
My main thing has always been getting a network provider to also provide
failover redudance. Had one dealing with lighting fiber and that was a
nightmare. Maybe I can get a few CIDR pointers from you. :-)
