Cogent Network Status/DNS Server Status Description:
Level 3 has partitioned its part of the Internet from Cogent's
part of the Internet by denying Level 3's customers access to
Cogent's customers and denying Cogent's customers access to Level
3 customers. Level 3 terminated its peering with Cogent without
cause (as permitted under its peering agreement with Cogent) even
though both Cogent and Level 3 remained in full compliance with
the previously existing interconnection agreement.
Cogent will offer any Level 3 customer, who is single homed to the
Level 3 network on the date of this notice, one year of full
Internet transit free of charge at the same bandwidth currently
being supplied by Level 3. Cogent will provide this connectivity
in over 1,000 locations throughout North America and Europe.
Cogent is committed to an open Internet. The existing
interconnection facilities between Level 3 and Cogent remain
intact. Cogent hopes that Level 3 will reactivate these
connections, restoring a full level of service to their customers.
