Cogent sales reps who actually respond

Regarding the latency, it looks like Cogent isn't much worse than anyone else. When they are bad, there's typically someone else bad there with them.

The argument has been listed numerous times so i didnâ??t want to bore people: 

1. Sprint peering battle. Google it 
2. He.net peering battle. Google it. 
3. Google IPv6 peering battle. Google it. 

All of which point to them being pompous assholes. 

They also run their links hot which create latency for anything flowing through it.
