The attack was over 1 Gbit/sec, and from what we can tell, the network was affected for no more than a couple minutes.
After further investigation, a client on the premium network was running IRC services. That clients account has since been suspended as per our AUP/TOS. This also brought out a couple issues with our network which have also been resolved, increasing internal connectivity over a couple routes, etc.
We have also had an ongoing DDoS over the past couple days, off and on, which has been over 100 Mbit/sec and showing no negative affects on our network.
