You know all those problems I’ve been having with my internet. Remeber that most of my packet loss from from Level3, outside Dallas. Well, check this shit out:
“The source of [the] difficulties is a feud between two big backbone Internet companies–the long-haul networks that most consumers and even most businesses ordinarily have little to do with. One of these companies, Level 3 Communications, has cut off direct communications with rival Cogent Communications, causing many of each company’s customers to lose access to potentially significant swatches of the Net.
It’s impossible to say precisely how many people are affected. Many customers of the two companies, and customers of the ISPs that use one of the networks, buy connections from several providers simultaneously to avoid outages of this kind. However, many businesses, individuals and even some ISPs have so-called single-homed network connections, which means they depend on a single provider to reach the Internet.
According to Cogent, between 5 percent and 10 percent of its customers were affected. Level 3 did not provide an estimate. Because some of those customers could be ISPs with thousands or hundreds of thousands of their own customers, the number of people affected could range into the millions.”
Someone will die. Death. The End. Finito. If I find out that the reason my internet sucks balls is because these two are having a pissing contest, I litterly will file a complaint with the atorney general and see what my legal options are. I’m not fucking around. I’m so angry it’s giving me a migrain.
Oh, and because I’m so pissed, here are the main 3 phone numbers for Level3. I publish these because I want them to know what it means to fuck with a geeks internet,
These numbers are all in Colorado.
Fuck’em. Death from above!
