Yes, definitely. Large broadband providers are going to have a
lot of infected hosts on them. See for example:
Telefonica, tpnet, rr.com, Verizon, Proxad, Telecom Italia,
Comcast, Wanadoo, etc. are all big broadband providers and
they have high sender magnitudes probably due to botnet senders.
Don't harm innocent bystanders.
