So, Verizon is saying that Level3 into them is congested,
NTT into them is congested...sounds like there might
be a bit of a trend happening here.  I wonder if
Verizon is having trouble provisioning sufficient
capacity to support all of their customers?  If
so, it would kinda suck to be stuck being their
customer at the moment if you can't get to
places you want to reach.  :(

I'm sure there's NTT folks watching the thread go
past, but it's unlikely they'd be in a position to
say anything in a public forum like this one way
or the other.  ^_^;
