What type of degradation? I haven't noticed any larger than normal problems.
Many carriers have a end of year freeze on network changes. Although the
freeze has been planned for a long time, I notice it didn't stop sales
people from promising due dates during the freeze period. If you are
expecting to see new service turned up on Dec 31, I don't think your
odds are very good.
Some of my friends at other carriers told me they had a big push to get a
lot of changes into their networks before December 23 to beat the freeze.
