Re: Cogent/Level 3 depeering

I opened a billing/support ticket with Cogent. I'm not planning on paying my bill or continuing the contract if they cannot provide full BGP tables and full Internet transport (barring outages). Luckily I have 2 other providers so I can still reach Level 3.

Maybe I can buy the new 'Cogent - it is almost the Internet' service for less money.

It's sure causing a few headaches here.
