Couldn't help noting that UUnet will run modems and routers
for AOL+Compuserve and it continues to do so for their biggest
competitor MSN (at least the last time I checked). Antitrust?

As a Web services provider we are already seeing AS701 as the
biggest consumer of our customer contents. Anyone care to share
their view of how the big boys rank in terms of traffic? IMHO
this does have just a tad bit more relevance to operations that
the original thread :-)
