We canceled some 10GbE Cogent circuits because of Cogent's refusal to
provision IPv6 without adding extra fees, and I expressed my reasoning
well in advance of canceling the first one.  I have been told that
they have now eliminated the special fee for North American customers,
but just two weeks ago I heard about this IPv6 surcharge stupidity
still being applied to Cogent's customers in Europe.
