Value involves money so that is the best metric. Do the backbone customers
pay money for access? Do the web hosting customers pay money for access?
Yes in both cases so the problem is reduced to engineering the best

Maybe GTEI sees itself as a bargain basement cheap low quality provider
and wants to dominate that market niche?
