We're only part of the laundry list, but other ISPs I'm aware of are ATT
Worldnet (not colo'd there, but served off the switch, primary number is
in the 796 exchange), Concentric, and PSI.  All numbers I have for them
return fast busy (local call) or some speech-challenged individual saying
"We are sorry, all circuits are busy... drool" (dialing LD).

The ATTLS noc sounded like a circus, they claimed that they were getting
calls from Chicago, and some other East coast locations.  They had no idea
what was happening.  The old ACC NOC in Rochester was unreachable by both
800 and normal numbers as well. hmmm.

We still see people dialed in, just no new calls.  All I know about SS7 is
that it's seperate from the trunks that carry calls, so my guess is all
signalling is down and they are at a loss to figure out why.
