Utah outage

You know if Sprint is gutsy enough (maybe customer centered would be a
better word?) to do this, why can't MCI?

Insert <almost everyone else> instead of MCI and you have a very good question.
I know NSI has an outage list, and we used NSR's back in the NSFnet days.
I do commend Sprint & NSI for notifying other providers of major outages.
