First Internet outage reported

  • From: Sean Donelan
  • Date: Sun May 21 04:54:36 2000

Traditional carriers have not treated Internet affecting outages
as reportable events.  Local, long-distance, 9-1-1, SS7 are typical
services listed on the FCC outage reports.  I believe GlobalCrossing's
FCC outage report is one of the first, if not the first, to list the
Internet as the service affected by a carrier outage.
