Might anybody have a recent analysis/opinion on them?
There are a few older threads.

I've some old saved references to harvesters and content filters.

Early on they were a content filter.
Today they are a dsl-provider, colo, web-hosting NET services, and a bunch more.
In addition, their website states they been acquired by Megapath, which seems to be primarily a hosting company.

My visitor today was one of their dsl customers.
Today's IP different from my previously saved references.

Is it possible to separate the actual users (dsl or otherwise) from the rest of their commercial users?

I have only two ranges tagged as speakeasy and both are flagged as DSL. - -

No bad accesses logged from either of them in two years. Nor would I have any baddies from other speakeasy ranges as I would have investigated and tagged them at the time - I hope!

Not to say I may have a range or two under the wrong tag!

Megapath I have the following tagged, both flagged as DSL: - -

I have two IPs flaged as misbehaving, neither of them more than one time: - feb 2012 (accessed IP instead of domain) - march 2011 (had invalid keep-alive)

Speakeasy today -

old: - -

I've an early 2007 subnet on the 92 & 93 Class B's that you provided.

I'm sure there's mpre IP's.

Thanks. I didn't have any of those listed, which means no one has been obviously bad from those ranges.
