If you haven't already seen it, the great Todd Underwood of Renesys
published an article today on his blog regarding this subject:


An aside, WV Fiber (AS19151) is currently partitioned from Cogent since
AS19151 only contracts with Sprint for transit and is settlement-free with
the rest of its peers.  As previously reported, late last year, Cogent
depeered AS19151 for unknown reasons.  Up until yesterday, this wasn't much
of a problem.  Now unfortunately, the two networks (AS19151 and AS174) are
partitioned.  Any single homed WV Fiber customer and any single homed Cogent
customer can not reach each other.  WV Fiber hosts over 7 million eyeballs
and many networks under its AS.

We hope Sprint and Cogent work out their differences, but in the mean time,
we unfortunately will remain partitioned from Cogent.
