We lost access through Cogent in the Chicago area for a small number of
sites.  Some partners also reported problems getting to us.

Cogent's updated status page includes the Jersey fiber cut and a routing
problem:

"Customers with traffic going through or on the east coast may be
experiencing packet loss and higher than normal latency due to a fiber cut in
New Jersey. Splice crews are at the site. There is no ETR at this time. The
Cogent ticket to reference for this issue is HD2082680. A separate issue has
been identified for customers in Toronto and Chicago. This appears to be a
routing issue and the Cogent NOC is looking into the problem. There is no ETR
at this time. The Cogent ticket to reference for this issue is HD2082851 "
