allocation to verizon wireless

We're not a big verizon wireless customer, (we have been allocated a /25
for remote data access devices). We run multi-homed BGP with vw. vw says
that they must advertise 48 summarized prefixes to us, instead of just
the /25. The 48 prefixes are apparently advertised to all of the
de-aggregated users contained in the summarized 48 prefixes. Is this a
common practice? If so is it a best practice?

haha, I went insane for a moment and though you said Freenix top 1000, 
and so I just checked that.  Here is the answer to the question you 
didn't ask:

Top 1000 Usenet Servers in the World
list here: http://news.anthologeek.net/top1000.current.txt
details here: http://news.anthologeek.net

1000 usenet server names
913 are potentially valid hostnames (in usenet news a server name does 
necessarily correspond directly to a hostname)
722 have ipv4 address records (A)
67 have ipv6 address records (AAAA)
9.2% of the top 1000 usenet servers have added support for ipv6

I'm sure there are more this took exactly 183 seconds of work. ;)

Here they are:
