I lived in Fairfax County for 17 years, pretty much centered on the 90s, and I remember AOL employees claiming that most internet traffic went through their data centers. No idea if it was true. Of course, they all retired at 16 and bought islands, so I'm no longer in touch with any of them.
Late to the party here, but...
One day trip from Washington DC to Minneapolis. In February (-10 F). Return flight that afternoon. Company was famous for that.

And that little company that nobody loved? IBM.
