Re: Military asking to ISPs to shut down equipment?

Should this request not be via the telcos pre-empting the circuits ?

Also does the military not operate its own private network services
both voice/data ?

We just received a call from our ISP that they were contacted by Quest 
Communications who is a major National ISP who in tern was contacted by the 
Military and were asked to shut down a lot of their equipment connecting 
clients to the Internet so that there would be more bandwidth. Other ISP 
supposedly received the same call. 

Get ready for a big outage....
