"Basically every non-mega-internet-corp in the world has a blend that includes Level3 or Cogent in their mix and you know it"

I know level3, HE, and others have global links, but you'll find in the UK at least they are at public peering points, and sometimes with the big ISPs but definitely NOT the small to medium ones!
