Cogent Haiku v2.0

We peer with Cogent.  They are very competitive in terms of pricing.  
To be honest, Cogent has been pretty good to us.  As long as you have a
2nd peer (which it sounds like you do) for backup I'd say they're a
pretty safe bet.

The only problem I've had with Cogent is that they're still not ready to
route IPv6.

The whole "you get what you pay for" talk is nonsense in my book, you're
paying top dollar with places like Sprint because they use the income to
subsidize their other efforts that are taking a loss.

I like the haiku!  On a serious note, we are considering getting a
connection from Cogent.  We currently have connections to at&t, Level
3 and TW Telecom.  The low cost and high number of peer AS number's
seems appealing to us.  Every carrier has its issues, so I don't know
what to make of the apparent negativity that I am seeing in these
haiku threads.  I am looking for some first hand experiences to help
me make this decision.

Thanks for any assistance!
