[tor-relays] Exit Relay throughput

Dear List,

How important is the throughput on an exit relay? I realize that more is always better, making it harder to associate exit packets with input ones at the other end. My numbers: For the same price I can buy 2 exit relays that run about 3500 to 4000 connections or one that runs about 4300 to 4700 connections. The actual daily throughput varies a good deal, but the cheaper ones show about 15-20% less throughput, at around 330 GiB/day when I look at vnstat.

Can I assume 2 is almost always better than one? Or is there a threshold below which packets are too easily tracked? I have no common sense about this.
