I guess Illuminet As I said, its a quirk in the FCC reporting regulations. Illuminet has relatively few direct customers (just a few IXCs and CLECs), so it never triggers the 30,000 customer regulation. On the other hand, carriers are not required to report outages in leased facilities from other carriers. Only the immediate supplier is required to report the outage. Put the two together, and you can have a wide-spread outage affecting lots of end subscribers, but is not reportable.
