Cogent latency / congestion [NEW INFO]

For those of you interested in a "from the ground" report, read here :

Somebody used a chainsaw on a cable at Euclid & 65th (a mostly abandoned industrial area).,-95.677068&sspn=43.799322,73.476563&ie=UTF8&ll=41.504383,-81.645863&spn=0.00127,0.002242&t=h&z=19&om=1

The roll of replacement cable was subsequently found to be damaged by gunfire (it'd only take one shot to a spool to ruin the entire lot). No indication that this happened in conjunction with the first incident.

The local cops are calling it a case of "dumb criminal", specifically that someone thought there was copper in the line (yes, they rip it right off poles here -- and sometimes, even try to climb the fence at a substation -- with interesting results) :
