Blip Gets Stuck in ISP Spat

Video host blip.tv is seeing its service in Europe affected by a fight between two ISPs. Swedish telecom operator Telia and U.S.-based Cogent Communications are refusing to exchange traffic, apparently because they disagree about how much they should be paid to do so. blip.tv CEO Mike Hudack writes on the company blog,

Unfortunately blip is a customer of one of these ISPs (Cogent Communications). They’re not our only ISP, but they’re one of our primary ones. For this reason some of you — particularly those of you in the European low countries — may experience issues getting to blip at the moment.
