	Realizing that most large co-located websites are in facilities or
at network providers who have many OTHER large co-located websites, the 
chances are great that cust-a will notice slow or no connectivity to MANY
websites.  Who do you think he will blame? :

a.) net-a
b.) net-b
c.) cust-b

	Of course net-a, he pays net-a $$ for connectivity, the customer will
not take many 'its on their side' answers from net-a, he will demand that net-a
fix his connectivity or he will leave.
