From my IT department:
"It seems that the internet is having issues at a Layer3 Communications
router, this normally would not be a problem but L3 runs some routing for
the internet backbone. The techs at L3 are working on the problem and we do
not have an eta as to when it will be back up, this situation is completely
out of our control. You may experience short network outages or severe
latency."
I would question any announcement from any department which doesn't even know the name of the provider in question, more or less who "runs some router for the internet backbone", whatever that is.
