My notion of the original statement was that the OP was looking for a 
provider that would block all UDP and ICMP, as in firewalls and packet 
filters.  I also made the possibly-incorrect assumption that if the OP 
has an ASN from which to announce prefixes, it would also be reasonable to 
expect that they already have at least one prefix to announce.
