Two lines from this are of interest:

You are only storing 100 MB of cache. The larger your cache, the more
objects Squid can keep in the cache, and the better your cache hit rates.
Assuming you have the disk space, try increasing the "100" to "1000" and
see if that improves your bandwidth saving.

I would suggest leaving this at the default of 8 MB until your cache fills
up and you get a better idea of how your system handles the load.
