Cogent is making in roads at a lot of Universities who want, as we all
know, large amounts bandwidth but don't want to pay for it :)
Whether the University is a sink or source of traffic typically comes
down to whether or not they filter/rate-limit their peer-to-peer
traffic. If they do, then the University will look like
any traditional end-user ISP. If they don't, then the University
will like like a hosting provider with lots of "content"...
