    Cogent's pretty brutal for sales.

    I'm fairly sure if you can't deliver they start chopping heads after a few quarters.

    When it's coming to end of quarter you can usually get some stupid deals from the under performing reps.

    Seriously? Do you have any examples so we can laugh, or funny stories? Hehehe.

    I've had like 4 different Cogent reps try to get me signed directly with them. Troy's been the only one thats been there longer than a year.

    I wonder what's their commission tho.

    More than fair. In fact, Cogent should be revoked of their business license.

  • Did Cogent have some kind of ARIN WHOIS access that regular users don't, that was yanked? If not, I expect they will keep finding ways to scrape the info.
