RE: Relative ISP size (was Broadwing)

Refinement and revisement of "standard" terms and definitions is all well
and good. Order of the day and all - we are definitely not a static
industry. But tolerance during these redefinitions transitions is indicated
unless you *want* to retain the reputation that too many netheads have by
upper management views. I know we all didn't get her by being jack@##3#,
let's leave that to [insert your favorite whipping boy department here].

I just thought your list of Tier 1 providers was
interesting - that gets back to the (very) old
argument about exactly what "Tier-1" means, and that
tends to be a religious argument for many. I like the
Skitter approach myself - www.caida.org - if they're
in red or yellow, they're Tier 1, if purple, tier 2...
