That is why any network worth its salt, gets multi-homed to at least 2 providers (or more), and doesn't rely on a single point of failure. Those customers that single-home, are likely in areas where either no other provider services, or they don't want to, or can't, spend the money or manhours properly multihoming. Which makes you wonder how/why they bothered to get an ASN in the first place if a default route would have worked just as well.So yeah, to flip it on it's head and victim-blame a little, it isn't actually really HE or Cogent's fault anymore. Both are THE CHEAPEST BANDWIDTH YOU CAN BUY, relatively. Those single-homed networks should be properly connecting themselves with true multi-homed connections to various providers. Otherwise they do the disservice to themselves and their customers. I mean if their only connection to the internet goes down, poof, they're gone.
