Verizon -related outage in Queens, New York
Our SDSL has been down for 49 hours at NYCQNYFH. It came back a moment ago and then disappeared again, but at least there is light at the end of the tunnel. This is an unheard-of outage period. To put this in perspective, we had a shorter outage during 9/11 when the POP was a few blocks from ground zero.
Speakeasy is blaming multiple failures with Verizon including a coax problem at NYCQNYFH (Forest Hills) and a fiber problem between here and NYCQNYBA (Bayside).
The real-time status on Speakeasy's web site never revealed anything about this because [only] 35 of their customers were affected.
I'm baffled about the network topology involved that would allow this to happen.
Supposedly thousands of customers were affected between other ISPs, consumers of T1, etc. Not a pretty scenario for anyone involved.
