Subject: Nigerian state-run telephone company cuts lines because of Y2K fear
The Nigerian state-run telephone company NITEL cut service to 20,000
lines serving private competitive telephone companies in the country
due to Y2K fears. The private companies say they are Y2K ready, and
NITEL was just trying to disrupt the competition.
Although many US networks plan to disconnect their own networks over
New Year's, as far as I know, no US incumbant telephone company has
plans to cut service to ISPs, CLECs or competitors due to Y2K fears.
