Cogent Peering

Can someone tell me if there are any tools on the net we can use to
evaluate Cogent as a possible Tier 1 peer. We are looking at adding a 1
or 2 Gig connection to them, but after reading some of the posting I am
not sure this would be a wise move.

Do you not know what your traffic ratios are with Cogent? You can easily get this information using Sflow or Netflow.

Keith,

I believe he meant he would like to purchase transit from Cogent.
