You are wrong. I've heard the stories & rumors, but empirical evidence > "so-and-so said". We send more than enough bit over Cogent to both business and broadband users to be statistically significant, and the packets get there. "YMMV", but our _experience_ sending packets over AS174 is more than acceptable.[..] If I was an FT customer and I'd seen this signal I'd be phoning Cogent now for a quote.I want my packets to make it to the destination. For some Euros more I get real transit from real networks. See, all the world is fine again. He who wants to save even more money gets what he pays for. I bet your viewpoint would maybe change if you had nearly exclusively DSL traffic and hardly B2B- type traffic. I could be wrong, of course.
Do you have any real experience sending traffic over / through AS174?
To be clear, I could say the same about FT. Both run perfectly fine networks, and both give very decent pricing. This is not to say we have never had a problem - we've had problems with every network on the 'Net pretty much. But we were happy with both of them - until now.
And if they don't get their collective acts together, I am certain they will both lose a lot of customers.
