How bad is Cogent?
The company I'm working for is moving to another data center and previously we had Internap and GTT in our upstream. We kept GTT, added Telia, and also Cogent in the new data center. From what I remember, Cogent was a horrible, cheap IP transit.
Our customers are mostly in the territorial US (80% or more). I was wondering if having Cogent in the upstream is a bad idea? Does anybody know if there are any residential ISPs in the US using cogent in their upstream?
We don't do IPv6 so I'm not worried about IPv6 reachability of Cogent, just the horrible name they made for themselves in the past 2 decades.
