You may not have a view into that you’re being hijacked and used to send
SPAM for example:

Their space was hijacked and announced facing Yahoo.  I’m hoping that
Yahoo is now feeding public route views services as a method to help
with detection.  Same goes for Microsoft and Google and other e-mail
providers.  Some sunlight here would help avoid similar localized hijacks.

Pricing obviously varies based on location and a few other criteria, but
you should be shopping if this is a major part of your business.
