Enough to DoS hosting providers based on _current_ practices. If 1g
FTTH catches on, hosting providers will probably want 10/100 Gigabit
transfer technology in a short time.
For now.. with 1gigabit residential connections, BCP 38 OUGHT to be
Google's answer. If Google handles that properly, they _should_
make it mandatory that all traffic from residential customers be
filtered, in all cases, in order to only forward packets with
their legitimately assigned or registry-issued publicly verifiable
IP prefix(es) in the IP source field. Must be mandatory even for
'resellers', otherwise there's no point.
And Google should provide _reasonable_ response to investigate manual
abuse reports to well-publicized points of contact which go directly
to a well-staffed dedicated abuse team, with authority and a clear and
expeditious resolution process, as a bare minimum, and in addition
to any and all automatic measures.
P.S. reasonable abuse response is not defined as a 4-day delayed
answer to a 'help, no contact addresses will answer me' post on nanog
(long after automated processes finally kicked in).. Reasonable
response to a continuous 1gigabit flood or 100 kilopacket flood
should be less than 12 hours.
If they think things through carefully (rather than copy+paste
Google groups e-mail abuse management), it'll probably be alright
