Hi Everyone,
Well, really, what is the difference, aside from allocation size,
between a large carrier and a small one?  Amount of customers?
Flavors of connectivity? Number of peers?  DFZ-itude?  If my network
provides connectivity to a city-specific wireless network who provides
connectivity to customers, how are each not ISPs?
To qualify for space, known ISP or not, you still need to meet the
same utilization requirements.  My little /25 wireless guy won't
qualify whether he's recognized as an ISP or not.
 My point is, if I've reallocated that /25 to him, and he reassigns to
his customers, thereby providing connectivity to The Internet, he is
