There was a big bounce on Internet routes about 4am EDT this morning,

Where any major providers or carriers doing network maintenance this
morning on the east coast?
I'm trying to distinguish between network problems due to maintenance
and the plane crash.
Verizon has been upgrading their frame relay switches across the northeast
this entire week. I'm not sure how much of this maintenance has been
rescheduled now. When I called the Verizon DNCC this morning at 4:00AM when
almost all of our NJ frame circuits disappeared, they stated they are doing
one state per night this entire week from 3AM to 6AM. They said they were
surprised I wasn't notified and they said that apparently nobody else was
either based on the volume of calls received vs. when maintenance is
properly announced . Everything was back up by 6:00AM.
