MCI outage


Got off the phone w/Hector @MCI indicating that they are currently have
problems with their OC12 ckt in Illinois. Routing through their network
is getting beat up...


As far as I can tell ATT Worldnets backbone service was out from about
6pm eastern daylight time last night until after I went to bed at one am
this morning. I could connect to the mercerville pop fine.....however my
packets went no where. I called the customer service number and received
a not very helpful message about the service being temporarily unavailable
after wading through several layers of voicemail menus.

MCI used to carry BBN cicrcuits which have at one point carried worldnet
circuits....... any relationship here?

this is first worldnet backbone outtage since I started using them in mid
december to reach netaxs. anyone know what happened?
