does anyone know of any outage in BR, perhaps associate ATT?
Do you mean Brazil? Can you provide further details, traceroute, IPs etc.?
If there isn't a SANOG, there is an Outages list.
"Where would we be if we didn't follow the correct procedures?" -
I'm not aware of a South America NOG list, and South Asia already uses
SANOG... but there is one outages-like list for Brazil called Caiu
(Portuguese for "dropped down") at
https://eng.registro.br/mailman/listinfo/caiu) and there is a NOG list for
Latin America called LACNOG at
