outages in Toronto Canada (other places?)

UUNET US customer service says no one has reported any problems.

Savvis has confirmed they are working with UUNet on a routing problem. What we were seeing is UUNet routes being announced by Savvis which UUNet's gateway was unable to reach. Many sites such as www.ibm.com and www.cnn.com were affected. Via our UUNet connections, these sites are all reachable without any problem.

UUNet also confirmed they had backbone problems which they claim were fixed about 20 minutes ago. However, we are still seeing the unreachable UUNet announcements from Savvis.

The UUNet tech mumbled something about Tyson's Corner VA, but I am seeing unreachable AS701 route announcements from AS6347 in New York. UUNet says it is fixed. Savvis says it is a UUNet problem. I just turned down our Savvis port...
