Because ownership of the provider/subsidiary delivering the last mile
means one hand is talking to the other, and you're going to get good
service and reliability as a result?  And "big names" never have any
peering-related spats and always deliver the best possible end-user
experience, right? :-)

(Some good points further on, though important we don't lead the OP
down the wrong path or with a false sense of security there...)
