Is Patterson and Walkhill also by the IBM facility? Do you know the connection that IBM uses? Do you know if the same internet connection on one side of the lake is also on the other side? I work for a company that has several thousand locations doing tech support. There are plenty of instances that one site has a different internet option then the site that is directly across the street.
I am not saying that the there are not any better options but it doesn't mean that they chose this option for nefarious reasons. I am sure there was a cost benefit analysis done and it was determined that this was their best option. It can't be that just because Watchtower did something that it is automatically a conspiracy.
