Doesn't refer to Sprint or anything.
But this wasn't the regulation I was talking about -- I'm suggesting a
public communication sent by the peered provider to its customers x days
before the partitioning event occurs. This would at least give their
customers some time to make alternative arrangements. Sprint's web page
points out that even while it was turning down each of the peering sites one
by one, several days apart, Cogent did not communicate anything to its
customers about the impending last snip. Of course, it appears that Sprint
didn't communicate anything to its customers, either.

Wait. Cogent's known about this risk factor for some time. Have they not
included this in their 10-Q/K filings?
