UUNET/WorldCom Backbone Diffiiculties 426

FearlessFritz writes "UUnet seems to be having a bad time recently. Several sites in the SouthEast of the US have been slow or down. Here is Worldcom's quote from their web page: 'WorldCom is currently experiencing an interruption of service in various hubs in the U.S. We are working to restore a routing anomaly, and making necessary progress toward resolving this disruption in service.' There are several rumors abounding, but the best is that they performed a hardware upgrade that failed. Is anyone outside of the Southeastern U.S. experiencing the effects of this outage? (I am peered to several providers so I can post!)"
