  *   Zayo = worse coverage/connectivity, adequate connectivity to other Tier1/Tier2, massive fiber network
  *   HE = less redundancy built into their network, but best-connected to leaves/edges of the internet (and still good connectivity to core)

Others may have had different experiences, but that's what I see from where I sit.

What is the current experience with Zayo or HE?  I’m looking at possibly adding one of them into a mix of cogent and a mix from my datacenter.  Would be using BGP full routes.  Any experiences would be appreciated.
