RE: Sprint / Cogent dispute over?
> https://www.sprint.net/cogent.php Yes, I've read it. They need to fix their <TITLE>. So while Cogent was depeered by Sprint, we contacted the CEO of Cogent on Friday to try and arrange at least a temporary peering arrangement so that bits flowed between our networks while they battled this situation out with Sprint. Cogent's response? Buy transit from them. I presume one of Sprint's dissatisfactions during the trial with Cogent were ratios. My network happens to have a very high ratio of eyeballs (inbound traffic) vs outbound traffic. One would believe that Cogent would like to offload their outbound traffic to networks other than their Tier-1 peers, to at least give them an upper hand when negotiating peering arrangements with these networks. It's funny how Cogent depeers networks whenever they want, but the second another network depeers them, they cry foul. Randy
