Cogent & HE

Or peer with HE and buy transit from Cogent (or someone on Cogent's friendly
list) - this is where I think their strategy is going to go after a while
with a lot of folks (if they have the option - that's the key).  HE will
peer with anyone I believe - Cogent has much more stringent "tier1" rules on
peering.

So we have to buy from BOTH HE and Cogent?! Sounds like market fixing to me!
:/

Guess if we do we can advertise that on our webpage... "now with BOTH halves
of the ipv6 internets!"
