Historically the network gets more stable when they are on strike.  It is amazing how well stuff works when nobody is 
mucking with the network.  We received new keys for all of our Verizon colos the other day,  first time that has 
happened.

I heard a few days ago this might happen through another carrier who
depends on a local loop from VZ. If you are waiting on circuit
installs or someone has to swap out an NI card this may impact you.

Thanks for the link.

It's not clear how this might affect what we do, but it might, and
I
figured the heads up would probably be useful.
