Re: Kicked in immediately

You can't sign up for a DDOS protection service in 40 miutes when you run your own datacentres and multi-homed network. It just doesn't work like that. I would guess they changed their BGP announcements so that some or all of the traffic was routed via their parent companies DC in Germany where it could be more effectivly filtered. a 40 minute turn around for that is not bad,
