2372Re: [coldwarcomms] Re: Two pictures added
- Oct 15, 2001I know of at least one circuit around here where AT&T had a
connection between two COs and the traffic is carried for
the local operating company alone. I have seen a couple
of other sites where that was also the case. One path
that is still active (at last check) in Utah feeds the
AT&T POP in Cedar City, Utah, via MW, from the regional
switch in Salt Lake City. I keep expecting that to go
to fiber Real Soon Now.
