Just out of curiosity, why do many (not all) of the large backbone

Because it is done by marketing, not engineering?
In my opinion, this alone should reduce the Value Number
of any given provider.
I can't imagine valuing more highly, any company whose marketing
department runs the place with enough sway, that their own
promotion devices are technically better than their competitor's
(including many highly respected organizations) by large factors.
You don't suppose that might be related to Compuserve's ranking

based on the results? Nah, couldn't be.
