Sprint LD is seriously affected in Northern Florida, Alabama, and
Mississippi from what we have seen.

Subject: Sprint LD routing affected by Katrina?



I've encountered several toll free numbers (like the BellSouth DSG) which 
can no longer be dialed from Gainesville, FL roughly coinciding with 
Katrina slamming the Gulf Coast.  I finally called BellSouth (the local 
ILEC) and asked what was up, as I can't get through from Gainesville, but 
I can if I use our VOIP network to route the calls out through other 
cities in FL (or if I use my Cingular cell phone).

According to BellSouth repair, it's a Sprint call routing problem.  I 
found it amusing and unlikely that BellSouth's DSG would use Sprint for 
their phone lines.

Is anyone aware of Sprint having LD voice routing issues, probably a 
result of Katrina damage?
