How divided is the table? I see about 98 routes transiting Cogent ASN
via a HE connection. Customer has only has HE as v6 upstream. An
previous post listed about a 1300 prefix difference. That's pretty
significant unless it's due to aggregation or something. I'd also be
interested to see the size of the other major carriers v6 tables so I
can patch a whole until the other upstream is ready.
