Good luck on that one. My old outfit (network security) has one, and
periodically, we'd stop being routed over the network, as the people
at our network providers would do some maintenance, and our IP block
would cease to be announced over the greater internet, since we were
the odd ones in the configuration.

Two or three years ago, Sprint would not parse individual C-class
announces in the routing tables; if you had a single block of IP and
had to go thru a sprint network to reach someone, you usually would
have either horrid ping times, or even a complete loss of
connectivity (you'd be able to go fine from here to A, and A to
destination, but utterly fail to go directly to your IP

So, be careful, for you might get what you wish for :(
