According to Sean Donelan:
All AT&T InterSpan North American frame services are down. Our 200
site WAN just went dark. No ETA for repair.
I'm starting to feel jinxed.
This afternoon AT&T was in the office explaining how wonderful their
network was, and tonight the AT&T network falls over.
We're in trouble - AT&T was also at my office yesterday - same
sales pitch I believe :-)
It's been close to 12 hours, and we are still not seeing any routers
on the AT&T connected frame services - any word on an ETA?

We currently have no pager service from Pagemart - same deal, its AT&T
frame relay related.
This is going on 24 hours now, and Pagemart has no restoral estimate.
For us this is EXTREMELY serious, as that is our NOC emergency alert system;
we alert via automated alpha page to selected people when something breaks.
For now we'll live, but this means that things will get VERY dicey if we run
into any significant trouble nad need to call people in or get ahold of them.
Thank GOD that we don't have any AT&T frame relay service.
