In Case Any Else Locally Uses Unicom's T1 Lines
Our office has a T1 line through Unicom and the connection has been iffy and slow all afternoon. After running some traces and such, finally called them, and apparently one of their fat-pipe DS3 circuits went dead, so they're routing a ton of their traffic through one of their T1 lines. They say the problem will be fixed by 5:00PM and it's only affecting their T1 customers, and if your on a DSL line, it's not an issue. What that means that if it's not fixed by 5:00, I get to switch the office back over to the DSL circuits we have upstairs as a backup, as the front desk has a Web-based reservation and management system, and they need a good connection to use it.
