Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Unburdened by legacy services or networks, Cogent can capitalize on the latest technologies without realizing excessive costs or cannibalizing more lucrative revenue streams.

Bears

Deflationary pricing for internet transit, where Cogent is a market leader, will lead to diminishing profits on that business.
