I can't take credit for finding this one. Somebody else on another
mailing list I'm on actually found it.

AS22558 itself _does not_ appear to be hijacked. Rather this is
a relatively new (2009) AS, but the AS itself is very odd indeed.

It's contact phone number isn't working, it apparently has no web site
associated with its domain name ( and although the whois
record clearly indicates that the company behind this AS is located in
California, the California Secretary of State's web site has no record
of any "MPG Networks, LLC" operating legally within California.

The whois record is also suspect. A little bird tells me tht there is
is no 'suite 411' at 707 Wilshire.
