Carrier outage?

I suppose it depends on the 'type' of outage and the type of traffic the 
voice conferencing utilizes.

If it's some strange off the wall protocol or something, I suppose it 
would have only affected a small portion of people and if it happened on 
a carrier like Verizon or Qwest or something, I suppose they fit the 
bill for 'major carrier.'

Although I would agree, I would demand answers too but they may be hard 
to get depending on circumstances.
