Are we?

When 25 Broadway failed, approximately 1% of the global Internet
routing  table also disappeared.  Which I would guess qualifies it
as a "major" hub.

But does that mean that X number of sites were unreachable, or that
there were simply Y number fewer routes to X sites? (Excluding those
*directly* affected, ie; those *in* 25 Broadway)

        From what point did 1% of the routing table disappear?
        Was the same visable from multiple, diverse points?

        I expect that from some perspectives, 100% of the routing
        table disappeared and some places didn't even see a blip.
