    Bandwidth quality?

    I see posted in various threads suggesting that some bandwidth is 'better quality' than others. Cogent seems to be labelled as 'cheap' and undesirable, whilst Internap and others get praise.

    My question is: 'What makes one bandwidth provider better than another?

    Fibers used? No idea. Any hints?
