It seems that some sites are inaccessable due to an Level 3 outage. Anyone know about this?

Don't know about that but a lot of sites became very slow about 90 minutes ago or so, if that outage explains that then I am happy to know it!

I've noticed several site problems. It appears there are some routers down in the U.S.

This is the first time I could reach WebmasterWorld or WebmasterWorld host since about 10 AM CST. Its now noon. I jut received a notice from my own host indicating the problem on Level3, fortunately my site didn't appear to be effected, but I sure missed my moring coffee and WebmasterWorld :)

Level3 is experiencing major core issues on the east coast. No details whether it's due to a cut, upgrade, or something else.

Master ticket number is 1086844 if you want to give them a call, but they're not saying much.

One of our partners uses VZ for e-mail. Down a couple of times today. Not sure if it is related, but it actually bounced a couple of messages rather than the lllooonnngg delayed delivery (5 hours) that occurs on occassion.

Looks like there was an issue in DC. Level3 now reporting that things are stabilizing.

Is Level3 a company name? Not familiar with the innerworkings of routers/switchers/etc.

I had the same problems yesterday, and my own host helped identify the problem was with AT&T. As soon as my requests reached their network, the packets were dead in the water.

sry to still be going on about this. But has anyone been having issues with load times on yahoo? email and search? I'm wondering if this might be related to the problems of yesterday.

Shannon Moore - i believe level3 is synonymous to T3. I might be wrong though ;-)

Yeah - they are huge:

Nine out of ten of the world’s largest telecom carriers all continue to use Level 3 services, as do five of the top six U.S. Internet Service Providers, and nine out of ten of the largest European telecom carriers.
