Rode by the mess yesterday on my motorcycle.
It is actually happened on Old Chain Bridge Road in McLean, VA, about 2-3
miles from MAE-EAST, near the CO there.
I live 2 blocks from MAE-EAST in Tysons Corner.
There was no impact on my T1 from Goodnet or phone service from Bell Atlantic.

The news this morning was the fiber was fixed and working on the copper now.
