Noone that I know of is doing > 4mbps.
isp-sat gets about 30+gb/day through, and as such is the biggest volume
that I know of (and all a few seconds delayed from a large news server).

However, there are plans to go to 8 and then up from there, and the 
equipment ip-sat uses scales to 34mb with no software or hardware changes.
