For you, in US, probably not so much, but you should really check.
For us, here in France, Online is one of the 2 top hosting providers (they even have several neutral datacenters where they lease racks/cages/datarooms) with a quite enough of legitimate traffic. I say enough, since 10's of MBps of traffic to classic (locally) well-known sites is easily hidden by spikes due to file transfer (they are also popular here for hosting private off-site backups - they actually even have an archiving service) or bittorrent.
I also saw a mention of Iliad, their parent company, stock-listed (ILD on EuroNext Paris), as "buletproof hosting". You should note that they also own one of the top 4 ISPs here in France and one of the 4 frequence-owning mobile operators. But those run each on separate networks.
One should probably do some minimal research on non-US companies before accusing.
PS: No, I don't work for them. Just happen to be personally a customer of 3 of the Iliad-owned companies (Online.net being one of them).
