For colo?  No, filtering is the customers concern, unless failure to do 
so is causing a problem for the colo network.  Such services are almost 
always paid for add-ons to a colo package.  The colocation business is 
usually fairly low on the profit margin with most companies trying to 
get away with the bare minimum possible over and above the basics.
