I second that, we're only getting ~2665 IPv6 prefixes from Cogent
compared to the ~3650 from our other transits. (been like that for more
then a year now)
Cogent's stance on it is 'You're multihomed with other transits, so
you're still reachable anyways' which strikes me as very odd for someone
who's supposed to be selling global transit.
They once called me asking about how satisfied we were with their IPv6
transit, but quickly ended the conversation once I asked about the
incomplete feed and the HE peering refusal.
Personally we don't see Cogent as a serious transit provider for IPv6
and have their v6 prefixes set with a very low priority.
