routing around Sprint's depeering damage
There are at least three ways to address this Sprint / Cogent partition: 1. Send Vint Cerf back up to Capitol Hill with a doomsday scenario of what would happen to the economy if anyone else gets as stupid as Sprint has been, begging for laws that any tier-1 or tier-2 who wants to de-peer needs to provide all their customers and peers with 90 day notice or face stiff fines. Send John Schnizlein along with him to get the House Communications Director an Akamai hosting account. Repeat the "eyeballs-or-data, which is more valuable" mantra whether or not there are still forty Republicans in the Senate. 2. Pick up some more fiber, dust off the router manuals, and allow and recommend that tier-1s transit any third party tier-1-to-tier-1 traffic. 3. Both. Which is the best way?
