CenturyLink L3 outage knocks out web giants and 3.5% of all internet traffic



I haven't been looking into that topic for some time now, but I remember a few years ago (when I was adding a second IPv4 Internet uplink connection to my home router) that the area of multiple-uplink endpoints remained a gray, contested area in the IPv6 world, and the solution at that time was that everyone with more than one Internet connection should start BGPing (I remember the blog post I read about this being strongly against the idea but stating that there are not many other viable options in this particular scenario). Has anyone here any understanding of current situation? I know that there are not many consumer level endpoints with this problem, but even a small number of private homes and/or small businesses trying to increase the reliability of their Internet connection may wreac havoc by advertising themselves wrongly and occasionally not getting filtered out upstream.
