Well, I'm surprised that it's not Worldom/MCI/UUnet.... We left them
a few years back because they wouldn't aggregate our slowly built up
/23 and /24 blocks into a new bigger chunk. We joined together with a
couple of other small regional ISPs to qualify for a /19, and get out
of under their thumbs.
Alone, we barely fill 5 dialup /24s, now working on our 6th.
Their salescritter (trying to sell us diverse T1s) told my partner the
other day that routing our separate /24s would not be a problem, and to
apply to ARIN for a separate ASN.
(Bill holds his head in hands and weeps.)
So, somebody needs to rein in the sales staff!
I beg of you bigger fish, be ruthless in filtering out the small fry.
It's the only motivator for cooperation.
