I confirm that France is having some problem with TAT14.

France Telecom International Backbone (Opentransit) is currently running with
non TAT14 capacity (10G)  and one oc48 direct to Copenhagen (that is ok).

We (Opentransit) are currently not experiencing any congestion but are
implementing a new 10G circuit to secure our topology until TAT14 is
back to life (one leg at least).
