I sometimes find it hard to comprehend the attitude of some suppliers. 
"Yes, we've got a service, that we might be able to sell to you, but we 
can't publicly tell you anything about it".

If the supplier doesn't wish to make that information public themselves, 
then I don't see that there can be a problem with their customers publicly 
saying how much they're paying/where they're connected/etc, as long as 
their contract with said supplier doesn't contain an NDA covering such

That would be very useful, thanks!
