Tue Nov 21 11:10:30 PST 2006 — Some AT&T DSL customers of all ISPs (including Sonic.net) are currently experiencing slow performance that appears to be related to a network congestion issue in AT&T’s ATM network in California.
The congestion appears to have begun this morning around 3am, apparently when a number of customer routes were moved to a pair of circuits which are over capacity. This has resulted in packet loss and high latency for end-users whose links are being routed over the congested links. Estimated time to repair is one to three hours. – Eli, Nathan **I have now mailed this out with incorrect formatting twice.
