We contacted Level3 a few weeks back, and were told that they do not provide any filtering service.
I've not been able to confirm this from anyone else, besides the Level3 customer service rep we spoke with.

Currently looking into a DDoS protection service from Akamai. Sounds awesome what they can do, but often "awesome" translates to "overkill" and/or "too expensive".

Subject: level3 dia egress filtering?

Does anyone have any experience dealing with level3 in trying to get egress filters applied to an internet dia link with them?

I've been trying to get them to apply an egress filter to drop all of udp to a certain /25 on my network that's been getting hammered by a dns amplification attack, and I am being told that they can only 'drop an entire protocol, and not to a specific ip address or range.'

Can anyone confirm if that's the case?
