Your comment about Cogent being DOWN often in Florida is different from my actual experience over the past 6 months. Can you provide proof?
We had a 1/2 rack with WholesaleColo few months ago and had to cancel it due to connectivity problems. We had failures of 1/2 minutes everyday. This kind of failures may not be recorded if you check your connectivity each 30 minutes...
If you would disclose the full tracert, everyone would see that before the cogent hops is a single psi hop to Level3 anyhow. Most all of the carriers are BGP connected via their peering arrangements, so your "OMG It's Down" doesn't hold much water anyway.
A single hop ??? Kidding ? BTW look at hop 15... 449 ms

I can recommend Serveroutsource as being an Honest business person above the age of 18 (considered a minority here on WHT) with a quality offering in a Fine telco grade datacenter in Miami.
Hey, I don't have any contract with srvoutsource, i'm not a competitor and i'm older than you i think. I'm not bashing. I'm looking for buying a rack but as i was a customer of wholesalecolo, i NEVER got an Epik backup with their Cogent line. That's all so if someone can explain me if it's possible i'll be convinced. All tracert you can make show Epik does not work as a backup if p15-0.core01.mia01.atlas.cogentco.com is down or VERY SLOW which is the same for me...
