Submission + - Internet goes down in Miami

An anonymous reader writes: Today in Miami there was a internet outage that seemed to affect at least 2 different ISP and one of the largest data centers in the world. At 7:41 PM EST I got a SMS from a coworker that the office internet was down (Hotwire ISP). At the same time my home ISP was down but 5 minutes earlier it was working. Within a minute I started receiving alerts on my phone that our servers were down which were hosted at the NAP of the Americas. This lasted for about 10 minutes before service on all three ISP/locations were restored. I'm curious what other ISP were affected (was Comcast and AT&T) so please comment on that if they were.
