We find that the amount of preparedness is directly related to the size of the entity - large ISPs are more prepared but small ISPs are surprisingly not.
SO who must work on these?

All exchange points, national and International should test their inter-connection.
All ISPS, and non-commercial Internet such as Research and Education networks, must also conduct the 5 steps. They include access points and leased lines.
All popular sites, such as Yahoo, newspaper or other information providers, e-commerce sites such as Amazon.com, AsianTrade resources must also be Y2K compliant. Many web-hosting companies, where large corporate or government web sites are often maintained must be ready.
