Because they are directly responsible for the existence of the Internet.
After all, GE invented the light bulb. If not for that we would have had
no vacuum tubes, thus no transistors, thus no ICs, thus no IMPs, thus no

Or maybe its because GE Information Systems ran the largest internet in
the world until the Internet surpassed it in size a couple of years ago.

Or maybe they don't. Why don't you ask them why they need it.
