    Global Crossing/Cogent European Peering

    Anyone know what the status is with peering between Cogent and Global Crossing in Europe? It's been going through the US for a while now..

    There are any number of reasons for this.

    Traffic engineering of some sort, for some reason would be my first guess.

    Or some sort of peering issue.
    Have you contacted your upstream (Cogent?) about this?

    I blieve that other ISP have the same problem as well. They have talked to Cogent about this as well but i haven't heard from them what's the reason for this type of traffic. Let's wait and see I guess.
