    telia - cogent - any hard news?

    Ok, I started a new thread to get away from the political discussion.

    What I want to know is what practical effects are being seen at data centers, and what workarounds have been implemented.

    Let the games begin ...

    If you're taking full tables from more than one provider, you shouldn't see any effect other than a small amount of traffic shifting away from Cogent; BGP automatically corrects the problem.

    I talked to someone at Cogent and no end is in sight, so those of you who singlehome to Cogent time to think about pulling in backup.

    The work around would be too simply route traffic through a different provider. Its not an issue for those who are multi-homed or for those who don't rely on Cogents pricing for their business model (which they shouldn't since theres plenty of other providers at the same price now a days)
