Nigerian state-run telephone company cuts lines because of Y2K fear
The Nigerian state-run telephone company NITEL cut service to 20,000 lines serving private competitive telephone companies in the country due to Y2K fears. The private companies say they are Y2K ready, and NITEL was just trying to disrupt the competition. http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/nm/19991230/tc/yk_nigeria_1.html Although many US networks plan to disconnect their own networks over New Year's, as far as I know, no US incumbant telephone company has plans to cut service to ISPs, CLECs or competitors due to Y2K fears.
