I recall seeing a comment about using the public Internet as private data
transfer. Since the smallest prefix you can advertise on the Internet is /24,
that breaks up the aforementioned Class B into 256 blocks. Given that GTE
(or any large corporation) is likely is divide its remote offices up in
headcounts of 254, there's room for inefficiency there. I could easily see
a use for _at least_ 4 Class B's, if not more.
