I don't know the exact impact but I've had my Covad and AT&T customers
ready to hang me because of what's going on.

As of right this moment, my Covad connections are slowly coming back but
have been acting spotty, I haven't heard complaints about the AT&T side
for about 30-40 minutes.

My POV, Covad is shaky because of their peering to XO. AT&T might have
corrected itself.

Their own phone systems... I have a lot of clients whose providers peer
with XO whose phone systems went kaput (one way audio, resolved, nope,
resolved, nope). This is one of the downsides of working an ITSP. Trying
to explain to clients why another provider they've never heard of is
impacting their business. Oy VoIP, how I loathe you.
