RE: AT&T US Network Slowdown?

Is anyone aware of a "slowdown" issue throughout the US AT&T
network since 8/18 at around 4pm which is causing a lot of
internet circuits (including DSL) to be inaccessible and/or
appear down from the outside world? AT&T says this has been
escalated to "Level 4" with no ETA and affecting the whole
country. I am seeing this problem in the San Francisco area.
Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing anything that
would confirm AT&T's claim, and fishing for more info about
the possible cause and ETA. Thanks!
We are currently seeing the slowdown on our network in San Jose. Started
about exactly the time frame that you mentioned. The rest of the country
(oddly) seems unaffected by this at the moment, but San Jose is getting
hammered by something.
Still trying to sort out exactly where it is coming from.
