It seems like almost every telephone company can be hit like that
except the ?largest?...

A denial of service attack by simply calling so many times it
fills up their main trunks.

And we saw how the large IP colo providers handle this for customers
who get dos'd. The amount of bandwidth they have is staggering and
they still cannot guarantee you will stay up if a ?skilled? attacker
wants you down. So you keep throwing money at it until you are
so well established online that you look at your monthly bill and
want to puke.
