All AT&T InterSpan North American frame services are down. Our 200
site WAN just went dark. No ETA for repair.

Anyone have details on AT&T tkt# 841-302-457?
Apparently 75% of all Canada/US cross-border just fell over and died.
I've got Frame and T's *and* 800/888 voice circuits that just went for a
nosedive. Nobody's saying squat.
Anyone with a clue or ETA? Who dropped a bomb or something? Is it just
AT&T? I tried Sprint and MCI's NOCs; they are both also "experiencing
heavy call volume" and that might be a clue it's bigger than just one IXC.
And I wanted to go home on time (ie. before midnight). Sheesh. I know, I
know, it's my fault -- I chose this as a career :-))
Anyone with a clue, drop us a note?
PS: yes, yes, this really should have gone to outage-discuss. Sorry...
