Cogent/Level 3 depeering

For those that don't follow service provider peering issues this might be an interesting look into what happens when provider depeer. Earlier today Cogent and Level 3 depeered which has caused all sorts of issues, primarily for folks who are peered with only one provider and they happen to be Level3 or Cogent. They have a bit about it over at CNET News also which is a good read. As a side note, CNET News also has a new look and feel - apparently so they can fit more advertising on the right hand side.
We haven't had much issues with the Level3 and Cogent depeering since we (j2) peer with both Level3 and Internap.
