Skycache/Cidera...until it didn't fit anymore in the bandwidth they had. 
IIRC, it was only around 28mbps.

Also, IIRC, that "business" was a sort of after thought after their 
original plan (squid cache pre-population) didn't pan out.

Anyone want to buy some Skycache chopsticks?  I think I still have a few 
unopened sets from whichever late 90s ISPCon I went to in San Jose, 
CA...Skycache rented out some museum for a sushi party.
