You dont have to buy from Cogent, they could buy transit from anyone.
Of course, this would mean they couldnt say they're a "tier 1" provider
in the conventional sense - but surely global reachability comes before
We take IPv4 and IPv6 transit from both Cogent and Level3 here in the
UK. I see no path to HE from either (for IPv6). For IPv4 all my paths
go to global crossing and then to HE.
Luckily, we also take a backup feed from OCCAID which is our one and
only path to HE and their customers via IPv6. If/when this fails, we
have no path to HE at all via IPv6.
Mike: I know you're on this list. If you'd like me to confirm if/when a
path is available via Level3 feel free to contact me off-list and i'll
re-check it for you (for testing purposes, I used 2001:470::/32,
2400:7a00::/32, 2600:3c01::/32, 2610:98::/32, 2a00:15d0::/32 and
2a02:1668::/32 lookups in the GRT)
