Re: Carrier outage?
I suppose it depends on the 'type' of outage and the type of traffic the voice conferencing utilizes.
If it's some strange off the wall protocol or something, I suppose it would have only affected a small portion of people and if it happened on a carrier like Verizon or Qwest or something, I suppose they fit the bill for 'major carrier.'
Although I would agree, I would demand answers too but they may be hard to get depending on circumstances.

One of our voice conferencing vendors had an significant outage last week, and pinned the blame on a "major US carrier outage" that affected telco resources "throughout the United States". Any way to independently corroborate this claim? I would imagine news of such a major carrier outage would have reached this or another operator's group (and I didn't see anything on this list about one). I'm not saying they're "lying", but I like to check out such claims to ensure my vendors are being honest and up front and not trying to pass the buck.
