Yep this is sprintlink.  Sprint has been having route flapping problems for
past 3 days.  Their NOC and engineers have been unable to pinpoint it.
The master ticket from customer maintenance 6554885 said the cause was
IS-IS routing problems.

You were lucky.  Looking at my routing table shows the majority of the
routes from sprintlink to be about 6 hours old.  This is best I have seen
in the past few days.  Most of the time the routes from them have been less
than 20 minutes old.
