The most interesting part of the press release to me is:

In the over 1300 on-net locations worldwide where Cogent provides service,
Cogent is offering every Sprint-Nextel wireline customer that is unable to
connect to Cogent's customers a free 100 megabit per second connection to the
Internet for as long as Sprint continues to keep this partitioning of the
Internet in place.  Unfortunately, there is no way that Cogent can do the same
for the wireless customers of Sprint-Nextel.
