 arrivals when I give the mean number of arrivals per time period?

Consider a scenario in which  precisely t time units fit inbetween two
arrivals. The arrival rate would then be 1/t. When customers arrive
with exponentially distributed interarrival times and at rate 1/t, the
arrival rate is the same in both scenarios, but the interarrival times
not.
