I've only dealt with a handful of the bigger networks, but every transit
BGP session I've ever been the customer role on has been filtered by the

Digex, Intermedia, Global Crossing, Genuity, Sprint,, Time
Warner, C&W, MCI, XO, Broadwing, and a few smaller ones nobody's likely to
have heard of.

There's at least one reasonably big transit provider that does *not* do prefix filtering: TeliaSonera (AS 1299). They *do* perform as-path filtering, but the effectiveness is disputable...

No, the effectiveness is not disputable. It is guaranteed to be sub- optimal. This is not in doubt or question.

See, as has been quoted many times, as7007.
