If you're connected to Level 3 in any capacity, they have a reseller
agreement with Prolexic and can offer REALLY aggressive pricing.  I really
liked their offering.

If anyone is interested, I did pretty exhaustive research into the Service
Provider marketplace last summer (before Verisign came out with their VIDN).
I've got some slides which outline the costs, mitigation capacity, etc. of
many different providers.  The provider option isn't always the cheapest
when compared to DIY factored in over a 3-5 year lifespan.
