Aside from the occasional peering wars i've never had or witnessed any

try some other similarly priced providers like WBS Connect, HE, or

I can second that. For the amount of money they charge, you get a very
good deal and their techs are competent.

However, due to peering wars, never rely on them alone. Any decent ISP
should anyway at least have connections from n+1 carriers.

I like the haiku!  On a serious note, we are considering getting a
connection from Cogent.  We currently have connections to at&t, Level
3 and TW Telecom.  The low cost and high number of peer AS number's
seems appealing to us.  Every carrier has its issues, so I don't know
what to make of the apparent negativity that I am seeing in these
haiku threads.  I am looking for some first hand experiences to help
me make this decision.

Thanks for any assistance!
