surely a noc's first responsability is to direct customers? even if the
other network experiencing the problem may affect said customer, the
service is not just about connectivity, but also about trying to deal with
calls in the best possible manner. if more time were spent on
non-customers, a paying customer would end up losing out on that warm
fuzzy feeling when his call is answered promptly, the person he speaks to
actually listens, and his general experience interacting with the noc is
something he doesn't walk away from feeling cheated.
