You mean WCG had a fiber cut, just west of Houston. Santa Clara is
completely and totally unrelated as a destination, on anyone's network.
This affects far more than Cogent though.

You can't hold longhaul fiber cuts against Cogent directly though. Stuff
happens. You CAN hold it against them when a single metro cut takes out
half of a longhaul crosscountry ring though, or when two simultanious cuts
segment the network into east and west sides of the country. Thats just
bad planning. :)
