What do you mean by not routing friendly? Do you mean that they don't provide BGP peering? Or, that they just don't really know what they are doing... Unless you have multiple upstream connections, there is (rarely) any reason to do BGP peering yourself. If you have your own ARIN block, most

There is no routing at all anywhere on their network. It's a single broadcast domain with a single router at their upstream. Their upstream does have internal routing. I can obviously route through to the Internet if I'm posting here. My upstream's upstream has AboveNet and recently added
