Cogent have had yet another peering spat, this time with most of Europe, resulting in a zero-warning de-peering of TeliaSonera.
While we’ve understood for a while that Cogent don’t consider themselves “whole internet” carriers, they’ve been quite forward about it not being “[their] responsibility to connect you to every point on the internet”, we still had this ridiculously naieve expectation that they might notify us.
We are – after all – talking about a contractual dispute.
Heck, for all I know, word of this post reaching someone at Cogent could cost PlayNet their Cogent connectivity.
I think we should just notify Cogent that we will be paying them 30% less for a while, effective immediately.
