They were up and down a few times, but mostly they were very vocal.  They
weren't a facilities based provider, so when the PTT shut off their

What was interesting wasn't networks went down. But how quickly people
were able to use whatever facilities which were still working to bring
up some service.  Satellite, fiber, copper, dial, etc.
