If anyone is interested I have contacts who can get abovenet and Global crossing bandwidth very cheap. $5000/month for 100mbits with a 1 year contract, available is majority of the major telco hotels. Shoot me a PM or an email to [email protected] and Ill get back to you
I worked for a competitor of Cogent's, only using different technology (30 & 60 GHz spectrum). Cogent's pricing is unbeatable. Global Crossing is close to collapsing financially. Abovenet is equally congested especially the West Coast.
Yes cogents pricing is unbelieveable, but we are talking about quality of bandwidth. Take a look at cogents network map and then look at mfn's network map and global crossing's map. They cant even compare and nor can you say that cogents bandwidth is good quality. I have never seen ping times like this on a global crossing or mfn's network
