    FYI: Cogent Co / Level3

    I don't know if this is the right forum, but before people start freaking out that some host is down or not, please refer to the below document Cogent has been sending their customers.

    Cogent Network Status/DNS Server Status Description:
    Date: 10/05/2005

    Level 3 has partitioned its part of the Internet from Cogent's part of the Internet by denying Level 3's customers access to Cogent's customers and denying Cogent's customers access to Level 3 customers. Level 3 terminated its peering with Cogent without cause (as permitted under its peering agreement with Cogent) even though both Cogent and Level 3 remained in full compliance with the previously existing interconnection agreement.

    Many Level 3 customers can still exchange traffic with Cogent customers because the Level 3 customer is multi- homed, i.e. it also has a connection to Cogent or to one of the many other networks with which Cogent has a peering relationship. As described below Cogent is offering a solution to Level 3 customers that are not multi-homed.

    Cogent will offer any Level 3 customer, who is single homed to the Level 3 network as of October 5, 2005, one year of full Internet transit free of charge at the same bandwidth currently being supplied by Level 3.
    Cogent will provide this connectivity in over 1,000 locations throughout North America and Europe.

    Cogent is committed to an open Internet. The existing interconnection facilities between Level 3 and Cogent remain intact. Cogent hopes that Level 3 will reactivate these connections, restoring a full level of service to their customers.

    For more information on Cogent's offer of free Internet transit, please call:

    EUROPE: +33 (0)1 49 03 19 30
