IIRC, doesn't a three-year contract of this sort involve actually adding 
*liabilities* to the books until the revenue is captured? I think this 
may have more to do with run-rates or cutting attrition since so many 
"allegedly" better networks are offering pricing at or below Cogent's 
old/original pricing.
