Following recent measurements of very high d.c. conductivities in complex Li fluoride-borate-sulfate glasses, we have performed systematic measurements in the Li2OLiFB2O3 system. All glasses studied have essentially the same Arrhenius pre-exponential constant. Converting the data to conductivity relaxation times the pre-exponential constant corresponds to a frequency considerably higher than the Li+ - cage "rattling" frequency. Connections between the a.c. conductivity and the IR absorptivity are discussed.
