So perhaps the question you should be asking is: Why didn't routes for

They did, and I'm not down. I see Level 3 via Sprint and GNAPs/CENT just
No, I mean: Why didn't *your upstream's* routes fall back to *their* other
peers, who should be perfectly capable of transiting those packets?
Who is Level3's upstream?

Who is Cogent's upstream? (Actually, I know the answer to that, but it's for partial connectivity, not full)

You seem to be confusing peering with transit...
