There are several. Most major providers claim to have one. But you
usually have to be a customer, and rarely post information about outages.
A provider's 'official' definition of an outage doesn't seem at all
related to what an ordinary person would consider an outage.
The DAL outage list often carries outage information from a variety
of sources, official and unofficial. firstname.lastname@example.org. But be prepared
for an onslaught of Bull's Eye Targeted E-mail.
General discussion about outage lists (but not outages) is on the
email@example.com list. A relatively quiet list.
And finally, CNN has coverage of outages on an irregular basis.
