Qwest is our ISP but not our webhosting organization. Verio (an NTT company)
hosts our commercial webpages in Washington, DC, near Dulles airport. That's
the routing that you should have seen.
While my routing originates from Qwest and then immediately flips over toNTT,
yours should had made a more direct path and never touched Qwest.
I do maintain a duplicate, back-up server here locally, on premises. Its IP
If you look at the route for that server, you'll definitely go through Qwest.

Although I didn't provide the tip, I'm pleased to take the thanks.
