I feel this can be a public topic:

Rogers just charged us that for an update (one update, multiple entries).
We had to go through their quotation machinery too, took like 4-5 days. Additional
time was wasted because we contacted their tech dept directly at the start. (which
is what I do for all my other upstreams...)

Kinda brutal.

Cogent and HE nor NAC or Yipes or Tata ever did that to us.

Nickle and diming -- why, cuz transit is a cheap commodity now, gotta make the
cash somewhere?

That said Cogent offered us a static /26 along side our BGP years ago then warned
us it'd be $50/mo or something for that # of ips going forward. We didnt need it
so dispensed with it.
