Michael, you should know better than that.  I do not see a subnet mask on
these IP addresses.  There is nothing stopping a Network Operator from
making these /32s and putting them on different networks.

Of course, a traceroute confirms that they are at least going through the
same router on the last hop, so they are likely on the same subnet.  But
your assumption was still a bit premature.

That said, I completely agree that using something like the ISPC is a good
idea.  You get secondaries all over the country on different ASes, not just
different subnets in your own AS.
