No, turning the phones *on* is what you do to their help desk. :)

Turning off the phones shouldn't inconvenience a NOC that much, since most
of the people there probably have cell phones too.  It mostly serves as a
reminder that their HVAC and electrical feeds are equally under our control. ;)

(No, we've never actually had to do it, and the actual business relationship is
a *lot* more complicated than that - at one point, looking at the paperwork
it wasn't clear if we were buying bandwidth from ourselves, or if we were a
*re*seller of our bandwidth to ourselves. ;)
