    i live near DC and can recommend some non-cogent DC's around the area. Why would you want strictly cogent? isnt that putting yourself into a bad position?

    I hear nothing but bad things about them and see tons of stuff to prove it.

    I know of one DC which has over 60 peering providers. It costs around 100-135 per u and you get 1mbps.

    but everybody other than cogent is really expensive (relatively)... and... yeah, cogent has their network quality issues... but some people just don't give a damn about their sites n doesn't care if its a tad bit slow... lol... with today's ad market, not like these sites are makin' a huge profit... heh

    well cogent isnt the best backbone but they are good for some things like irc servers were its ok to have like 100~ms ping to the server and when they get dos'ed it doesnt cost you as much hehe

    or if you have like a website that mirrors files or like adult content cogent is good basicly anything that needs lots of bandwidth at a somewhat higher latency its good..
