DSL problems (PacBell and Covad)
InternetNews had an article about DSL problems at PacBell and COVAD. http://www.internetnews.com/isp-news/article/0,2171,8_347841,00.html It appears COVAD blames their problems on AT&T and Qwest cable outages, which did happen. But I have reports from half-a-dozen different people reporting several different outages due to switch failures, switch limits being exceeded, code upgrade failures, including one upgrade where the code crashed at one office one night, and the next night COVAD loaded it on the next office which also crashed. PacBell's DSL outage was reportedly due to a switch failure, although PacBell couldn't tell or wouldn't tell, how many customers were affected by it. Is this simply a case of different providers having switch problems at the same time? Typical problems of deploying bleeding edge technology?
