RE: MCI outages (summary)

  • From: Chris A. Icide
  • Date: Thu Jun 26 18:17:57 1997

We've been peering with MCI for a while, and was an MCI customer
way back when.  It has been my experience that when we make
a call to the MCI NOC to report a problem, we have recieved as
good (if not better) performance from the NOC as a PEER as
we did as a customer.  Since I am very happy in the response
for all problems that are technical in nature, I would say this is
good.  However, if the problem in "political" in nature, forget
getting any kind of answer from anyone, unless you "know"
someone inside.

>From what I understand of MCI's peering agreement, you have to come into
at least 3 NAPs with DS3 bandwidth or better to even be considered to
peer.  So, I think if you peer with MCI, you'd definitely carry enough
weight with them that they'd take an interest with what problems you have.
