Telia resolves internet dispute with Cogent

Players who have experienced lag in World of Warcraft or no service at all may breath now. Cogent and Telia have resolved their dispute and a new agreement has been reached. Read the full report.

“We are happy to have signed a new contract with Cogent and regret that some of our customers have been affected by the dispute,” said Malin Frenning CEO of Telia Sonera International Carrier, Dagens Nyheter (DN) writes.

The dispute began at around 11pm on March 13th when Cogent decided to cut off communications with Telia Sonera in protest at the “degraded” service it claimed was experienced by its customers. By 6.30pm on Friday the connection was re-established and Cogent customers in the USA could once again access sites hosted by Telia, such as World of Warcraft.”
