Abstract: This paper deals with the size of the preimages of points of $ \beta N \times \beta N$ under the continuous extension, $ \tau $, of the identity map on $ N \times N$. It is concerned with those points $ (p,q)$ of $ \beta N \times \beta N$ for which $ {\tau ^{ - 1}}(p,q)$ is infinite and extends the work of Blass [1] who thoroughly considered those points with finite preimages.
