Hi Sam,

As you may have noticed, Netflix no longer uses Cogent as a transit
provider. You will see all of your transit traffic from us traverse Level3.

We are happy to try to work with you to find the best way to deliver your
traffic. Please reach out to peering at netflix.com and the team will try to
help.

Regards,
-Dave
