I would certainly put my best face on mine, if >web hosting had any portion of my business, or if providing dedicated >access to people who hosted theirs were any part of my business. perhaps you don't understand how a large ISP works. their home page does not generate revenue as does, say, a search engine or an advertising company. there is no good reason to waste valuable colocation space on something like the corporate web server. instead, an ISP can put a PAYING CUSTOMER server in that space. the customer then gets the best possible performance and happily tells their friends about the great service they are getting. in your scenario, customers are considered secondary to having great performance on the corporate home page...sounds like a good way to loose customers, but a great way to look good on some contrived and ambiguous benchmark.
