A cynic would say that they are trying to book the revenues to raise some finance...


IIRC, doesn't a three-year contract of this sort involve actually adding *liabilities* to the books until the revenue is captured? I think this may have more to do with run-rates or cutting attrition since so many "allegedly" better networks are offering pricing at or below Cogent's old/original pricing.
