DDII- Even if they could convince/order Verizon (The largest Teir1 provider) to shut down it would take days or more. Their system is built to provide as close to uninterrupted service as humanly possible which means certainly hundreds, maybe thousands, and possibly ten thousand or more routers in data centers all over the country.
While it may be theoretically possible to shut them down I just cant imagine the logistics of actually doing it. Even if it wasn't a power down but a deny all policy its still hundreds of models of routers that require their own rules files.
It may well be possible but the nuts and bolts of it are truly mind boggling.
Thats why I say it would be easier to get certain segments to shut down than to get the ISP's to shut down. For example, Bank of america could probably push a drop everything to all of its internet facing firewalls in about hours or so. Of course, thats the technical side of it. The bureaucratic side would take a lot longer.
