RE: Cogent service

I corrected myself to note this figure was us not ns (but I don't see that
post yet). When you say 1-2 ms added under load do you mean CPU load or
circuit load? Remember anytime the router has to buffer packets you are
going to see delay (unless you use a QoS mechanism - but that's a whole
other thread). Your example appears to backup my post - when you go a long
way around (despite the numbers of routers involved) it takes longer to get
there than the short route, but this isn't the routers making it slow, its
the distance.
