An ISC reader wrote in to let us know about a current Level3 outage based on Internet Health Report (IHR). It seems the main issues are with its Detroit origin, although St. Louis seems to be affected too, probably as a consequence of the former one. In fact (although not necessarily directly related), Level3 main web page is not available: http://www.level3.com.
UPDATE 1: (UTC, Sunday, December 28, 2008 at 18:21:00) During the last few minutes we have confirmed the Level3 issues with several ISC readers. Thank you to all who wrote in to let us know and confirm it!
UPDATE 2: (UTC, Sunday, December 28, 2008 at 19:45:00) It seems everything is back to normal operations now, according to IHR.
UPDATE 3: (UTC, Sunday, December 28, 2008 at 21:08:00) John (Thanks!) let us know that while IHR may be reporting that things are back to normal in the Detroit area still there are offline data connections and even using cell phones you get the message that the "call cannot be completed at this time".
If you have any additional information about the real reason for this, please, let us know.
