MCI WorldCom fiber cut - Houston, TX
Speaking of fiber cuts, there's an MCI/Worldcom fiber run in downtown Houston, TX that's out. The location is at Walker and Louisiana as best I can tell, which just so happens to be in front of the building my office is in. There's a long line of MCI Worldcom trucks and a crew out there now. Several multi-homed customers of UUNet in Houston have their UUNet links down. I'll send more info as I have it. Both Qwest and BBN/GTEi have POP's in this building, but they appear to be unaffected. UUNet's main Houston POP is a few hundred feet down Louisiana. With all the construction in this area of downtown, I'm frankly shocked that this hasn't happend until now. -- Joseph W.
