What were you taking to be the meaning of Internet Connection Record
when you did this calculation? Every TCP connection? Or only each TCP to
a different site (which would still include a bunch of different ICRs
per page, especially thanks to advertising, but I'm surprised if it is
as many as you say).
My understanding is that the government only want collection and storage
of the latter.
I appreciate that the practicality of applying that distinction may be
questionable, but that's another matter.
