    Hrm, so after I posted this, I looked a bit deeper into it and found:

    So, for at least for traceroute www.akamai.com, Coget is using their
    peer (Global Crossing) to reach Akamai transit provider. Guess I
    got caught up in the past myself, thinking "Cogent would never depeer
    a slut like Akamai".
