How has bandwidth pricing changed over the first 5 months of this year? What are your impressions? The second half of last year was marked by rapid pricing declines, but it seems as if since January things have been (relatively) stable for bandwidth from most providers. I realize this various with geography and the size of the commit, but I'm looking for the general trend.
Clearly the most aggressive has been Cogent. But the big players - Level3, Savvis, MCI, GLBC, others - I haven't seen anyone offering pricing that has changed much for bandwidth from these providers in a long while. Have they frozen pricing?

On what kind of commit? I've heard VERY different things from *direct* Savvis reps.

The trend in Europe is dropping prices because of Peering agreements. Why pay transit costs if you can get a 1GB peering connection for €350,- a month? 1Mbit transit is about € 30 euro ~ 50 dollar at the moment (Amsterdam)
