Stumbled upon this doing some other research.  Some interesting names among those....

Including B2 Net (Servermania) who dangles purely off of ColoCrossing's network.

You have ahh Digital Ocean in there, but no one brings mention to the Uretsky brothers other companies and prior companies... Wonder why?
