That looks to me like alter.net is doing this just within their own
network.  If ctel.net is a customer of theirs, and and wordwrap is
a customer of ctel, maybe much of this, if not all of this, is non-BGP
and just default routed.

There's technically nothing wrong with routing private numbers within you
own net and offering that to your customers.  I just tried to traceroute
to those numbers from my MCI connection and it went into the MCI router
and died.

Is the existance of these routes causing you a problem?  Are you using BGP?
Can you filter the routes and packets in your access lists?
