> How many customers did Experian lose?

Experian didn't lose any customer data, though. They only lost data on their products. Their actual customers had no reason to stop paying for their services.

It was Equifax not Experian.

It think it's telling that, in this instance, it really doesn't matter. It could have been Experian, with the wave of a butterfly's wings in Himalayas, it was Experian and nothing changes in that alternative universe.

Experian makes its money selling credit checks to banks and other businesses. You're not their customer, you're their product.
