Two current experiences . . .
I still do work with an ILEC that gets requests for waves to Cogent. Cogent
has a data center in the market but won't allow the ILEC to build in.  So
Cogent burns ports in another data center where Cogent pays for space and
power.  Cogent reps says no one gets anything for free.

Had a recent event with Meta for the small market ixp deployment.  The use,
just use, Cogent for connectivity /fill.

And a plan . . .  Order up 10g Global peer exchange ports from them. They
are free.  Maybe if they sell enough of those they will have to spend more
of their dollars.
