 There are some assumptions here. First are you considering volumetric

I cant believe this .. http://www.iprental.com

Looks like anonymizer combined with what looks almost like a "rent a
botnet", legit nodes (you sign up to download a client that makes you
part of this botnet, etc)

Speaking of a "commercial botnet"", there was something similar
earlier - but that was a "download this bulk mailer" type operation,
guys called Atriks, who got tracked so extensively by spamhaus that
they seem to have kind of disappeared now.
