I'm on O2 in the UK and when I ran a traceroute today, I saw that just like GSIO01 and Dyce9984 above, I'm no longer routing via Cogent at all, but rather via telefonica.
And I now have no problems with either the forum or the STO game launcher (or the Champions launcher either of course).
Make me wonder if the affected providers got POed with Cogent's tardiness in addressing this issue and simply took them out of the equation altogether. So fingers crossed that's an end to this particular hassle!
Props to Cryptic for weathering the flak on this one btw - this really was an issue beyind their control, but they did still do what little was within their power to do and keep the comms up between themselves and companies on the other side of the Cogent divide..
The Cogent Divide, hmm...would make a good name for a sector of space dominated by singularities that collapse warp fields and slow any ships passing through to a crawl...
