Additional transit provider
We added another phat pipe.  Posted on Jun 7, 2019 12:00 -0400

Hello everyone. We just finished turning up a new internet transit/backbone connection to Cogent. We use BGP to select our routes and around 20% of our user traffic is now flowing out the new connection (because it’s a better/shorter path). The new connection is just one of the ways we’re working to make our user experience as fast as possible.
