Does anyone know of any non-ISP companies that have decided to

So far, I only know of a couple, with PointCast being one of them.
The Eli Lilly pharmaceutical corporation based here in Indanapolis
(www.lilly.com) is multihomed. I would assume any corporation of this

value on their internet connectivity to obtain redundant connections.
