Network outages today?
« on: January 28, 2019, 07:21:18 PM »
Hey, all.  I've been hearing from my comrades in the DC metropolitan area that they've been having a hell of a time receiving and making calls today.  We've had complaints from as far out as Indianapolis that they've been having inbound trouble to area codes 202, 240, 301, 443, 540, 571 and 703.  Each customer is using different carriers, so there's no rhyme or reason for it.  Has anyone heard anything about outages?

Looks like Level 3 is showing some issues in that area:

Wow, it's deep.  It makes sense that it is a Level 3 issue because they are the transport provider for Cox and many CLECs in the area.  Most of the complaints are coming from those kinds of customers.  Yikes!

I find https://downdetector.com/ very good for looking up outages.  I think thats where that screen shot came from.
