RE: Military asking to ISPs to shut down equipment?

Was this in the NYC or DC region, or elsewhere?  It's not
as if there's a nationwide bandwidth shortage....

Has anyone received a request like the one that was I forwarded below?

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 
clients to the Internet so that there would be more 
bandwidth. Other ISP 
supposedly received the same call. 

Get ready for a big outage....
