We had an eBGP session with them at that time but it was very problematic.
It is strange that the IP blocks that had the issue were the same blocks
that we advertised with them and the ones that we were using with Level 3
at the time were unaffected.

Once this message posted to the group, I got responses from Charter almost
immediately from the group. So if I had been a member of the group
yesterday morning when the problem was discovered I could have had a much
faster resolution.

Thanks for the response.
