Level 3 OC-12 cut in SanFran/Hayw

Keep waiting. I've been yet unsuccessful on getting a call back from anyone. They keep saying the same thing "it's part of a oc12 issue, field techs have been dispatch, please wait, no etr". Since that's now over 12 hours, I don't find it acceptable (not the down part, if it's part of a large cut, outage etc, I understand that), but rather their lack of information. I've escalated it to a "level 4 escalation" and they promised a callback within 15 minutes (which was 30 minutes ago).

By any chance, were you originally a Broadwing customer? I have a feeling that the oc-12 that was disconnected was a mistake in their db caused by the acquisition, and since they may have lost the original info, they may have no choice but to re-engineer the circuits.

I can tell you I have a DS3 here in Wyoming down because of this outage as
well.  14 hours now it's been out and we haven't received anything from L3
unless I call and beat it out of them.  I am waiting on a CB from a
supervisor right now.

We lost a DS3 out of our downtown SF office around 4 hours ago. The Level 3
master ticket for OC-12 outage is #3020259 and is out of Hayworth. Anyone
know anything more about this? Getting any info out of level 3 let alone an
ETR has been challenging.
