    Analogue Circuits (T1/T3): 651744

    Digital Circuits (DS/OC): 651751

    [edit: ticket number typo]

    We're having the same problem as well, our main connections are up but routes from other Tier 1 providers are not always connecting. According to them there were upwards from 7 to 50 downed routers.

    The circuit inconsistencies appear to be an IBGP routing protocol issue.

    When WorldComm first started having problems my T1 in Oklahoma had not one, not two, but three timeouts spanning anywhere from five to thirteen hours.

    We received nice credit for the time lost, but it was completely unacceptable as we lost a few colo's.

    We have since then moved everything from our Oklahoma location to our racks in the CIT datacenter.

    All is well now.

    Below is an article for all those who are interested in knowing what type of disaster it would be to have WCOM/UUNET turn it's fiber off.

    Today's outage only affected parts of the US, a worldwide outage would be catastrophic.
