One of the heavily discussed design questions for low latency anonymity systems is: "How much additional anonymity will the system provide by adding a certain amount of delay?" But current research on this topic ignores an important aspect of this question - the influence of the delay on the number of users and by this means on the anonymity provided. This paper shows some first experimental results in this area. Hopefully, it supports better design decisions for low latency anonymity systems.
