Network instability 12956 <=> 18881

Does anyone know what’s going on here? There’s a lot of BGP churn coming from this network edge.

They are both Telefónica operations; 12956 is TIWS/Telxius, 18881 is a CLEC they bought a few years ago, previously known as GVT.
Could be a cable cut in SAM-1, the submarine fiber system operated by Telxius (the cable is also known as Emergia).


This is the 2nd time in the past month or so we saw this and at least last time when I posted to NANOG I got no reply but the route flapping stopped immediately :slight_smile:
