The impression I got was they originally scattered their machines to everyone who had a network with a growth plan and bought them a beer. Some people even got/get paid to host them. After the .com crash they started being a bit more careful about who they gave them to and doing a bit more analysis as whether a new site was worth the trouble. One way to get a cluster might be to suggest that your will make better use of it than a nearby company with a cluster that is much smaller than you. I have heard of people trying this in Australia, no idea how well it works. I know people who were doing under 10Mb/s via their clusters, but they are in Aus/NZ so the threshold might be higher elsewhere. -- Simon J.
