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.
