When you're the largest corporation on the planet and have more money in the bank than the US government you can pretty much get anything you want.

I think IBM also had an entire class A at one time.

:: detour to IANA [iana.org] ::

Setting aside the absolutely jaw-dropping number of Class As allocated to various military entities, a few more for governments, and excluding Level 3 and PSInet which are kinda bogus, I get:

03/8 General Electric Company 1994-05 LEGACY
09/8 IBM 1992-08 LEGACY
12/8 AT&T Bell Laboratories 1995-06 LEGACY
13/8 Xerox Corporation 1991-09 LEGACY
15/8 Hewlett-Packard Company 1994-07 LEGACY
16/8 Digital Equipment Corporation 1994-11 LEGACY
17/8 Apple Computer Inc. 1992-07 LEGACY
18/8 MIT 1994-01 LEGACY
19/8 Ford Motor Company 1995-05 LEGACY
20/8 Computer Sciences Corporation 1994-10 LEGACY
32/8 AT&T Global Network Services 1994-06 LEGACY
34/8 Halliburton Company 1993-03 LEGACY
44/8 Amateur Radio Digital Communications 1992-07 LEGACY
48/8 Prudential Securities Inc. 1995-05 LEGACY
52/8 E.I. duPont de Nemours and Co., Inc. 1991-12 LEGACY
53/8 Cap Debis CCS 1993-10 LEGACY
54/8 Merck and Co., Inc. 1992-03 LEGACY

I know Merck has been subletting, because we met a bit of Microsoft there not long ago. Anyone have any idea what DDN-RVN is? (I left them off. They're 21.) And what's the Amateur Radio stuff?
