RE: Qwest yesterday?

Their usual excuse is a fiber cut somewhere, but they didn't even give me that this time! The thing is, my CSU was green so I know the physical circuit integrity was there. I'd think it was a bad route, but it didn't seem to propogate far enough to be that (my Qwest DSL worked fine, and other parts of their network were ok), so I'm leaning towards catastrophic router failure, though I can't imagine why it wouldn't have gone to backup. Surely Qwest has redundancy... ???

It has been my experience that the last mile in the mile high city is the worst last mile ever. Qwest and USWest have had multiple outages for our T1 in Denver, but we never are given a very good RFO. (reason for outage) the best we have been told is that on separate instances we lost a load coil, redundant sonnet rings for the city, a repeater and a bad CSU chassis. Our ISP is concentric, but I think the physical lines in Denver are the problem. Good luck!
