It would be very helpful for operators to advise on any status they
are seeing. Hopefully someone from the Nap Of The Americas can also
provide some information.


Two data points:

We have connections from Honduras to NAP of the Americas; one via MAYA-1
and one via ARCOS-1. The MAYA-1 link is down hard, and the ARCOS service
has been degraded at times (high packet loss / ping times) but has been
working for the most part.


Who is your transport into the NAP? Is it Bellsouth?

One interesting effect during the last hurricane was that Broward county customers (Ft Lauderdale is in that county) had no dial tone service but dsl was working. Someone mentioned they lost the tandem. The comment was made that voip phones were working and not the traditional lines which some found ironic.

I also see some people at the NAP down on XO but L3 and Broadwing etc are up down the street.

With some more information perhaps we will start to see where some common elements might have failed.

Anyone at the Bellsouth Grande CO with issues?
