Re: Cogent Communications?
Indications are that Cogent is an MTU (multi tenant unit) provider, AKA a bLEC, like Cypress or ARC. That's how they will get the necessary economies of scale. Even so, $10/mb is no way to ever brake even. Seems to be an exercise in transitioning money from VC to equipment and fiber vendors as quickly as possible...I was impressed by the folks they had at NANOG, though - seemed like very nice folks. Nice folks with a kind of whacked business model, though. - Dan Golding On Tue, 12 Dec 2000, Bill Petrisko wrote: > Has anyone heard anything about Cogent Communications (www.cogentco.com) or > done business with them? > > Their product is a dedicated 100Mbps of transit for $1000/month. > > Quick rundown: > Metropolitan OC-48 rings, with no more than (24) 100Mbit customers > on each. > Nationwide OC-192 rings between the MAN rings with extensive private > peering. > > Any feedback would be appreciated. > > thanks > bill > -- > William J.
