Major Internet bandwidth provider terminated services to Russia

Cogent Communications, which is estimated to carry 1/4 of the global Internet traffic, terminated access to major Russian internet service providers.

In justification, CEO Schaeffer said that “I can’t pick good Russian traffic from bad. It’s just a big pipe.”

This move will affect streaming services such as Netflix as Cognet Communication is specialised in providing high volume Internet traffic.
