    Having worked for a two ISP. You'll have 50-70% profits coming from business and goverenment contracts then after less than 40% domestic services

    This doesn't include bundling of services thou

    If you examine the iiNet financial report, you'll find that you're completely wrong on that front (given that we're talking about iiNet).

    I used to work in Corporate Sales at Node. This isn't even vaguely the case, there are high overheads for servicing and account managing customers like those.

    Then you know that we can't be exact... vague at best

    Fair enough, understand your reticence and appreciate the concern. Luckily iiNet's profitability and where it comes from is in the public domain now.

    Then rather than quote something incorrect, perhaps don't quote at all?

    Companies that I've worked for in the past would have yearly events for employees and they'll show you certain things.

    An example:
    Another company that I know of called BigAir has been on the acquisition hunt. Started up buying the niched market players of uni internet services providers because they had large contracts.

    IInet doesn't have a great deal of business customers in comparison to nodes, Like BigAir it's quite attractive to purchase a player with large profitable customer corporate customer base and extensive contracts that you couldn't

    IINET been about domestic customers mostly
    Node has been Geeky and has/had various lucrative business clients

    yes vague :(

    And this is relevant how?

    Gee you speak some shit, thetron.
    Common sense says not every ISP will follow the same business model.
    Saying that every ISP "will have 50-70% profits coming from business and goverenment contracts then after less than 40% domestic services" is just total rubbish. Then trying to cover up your boo-boo by saying you're being intentionally vague because of a potential threat of legal action is just crossing over into totally ridiculous.
