It appears that Cogent has emerged as a new force in the CDN Ecosystem. For many years, Cogent was perceived as inexpensive transit that was vastly oversubscribed. In fact, the competition has been using this against Cogent for many years. It wouldn’t be surprising if many Telco folk still believe this about Cogent.
Cogent is a new powerhouse in transit to CDNs. A handful of CDNs told us they noticed a big difference in the QoS of Cogent transit, and it was on par with Level 3. We didn’t believe this at first, until three CDNs told us so. More confirmed afterward. That’s good to know there are more transit options available to CDNs worldwide.
