There are far more ISPs with less than 10G of total traffic than ISPs with more than 10G of traffic.

From the docs I could find, I couldn't tell if it was only geared towards home / small business or if it could scale up to handle ISP level traffic. 

It's a feature of macos server. You do get to register prefix with 
apple, but I don't imagine colocating a mac mini is isp level traffic. 

That said as714 peers extensively 

so picking them up works too.
