> During this window we will upgrading the hardware on two of
> our main backbone routers.

> Our plan is to reboot each of the two routers, once, but,
> if problems arise, additional reboots could be required.

> This will cause periods of routing instability for all
> ISPnet customers, including those connected to other ISPnet
> POPs.  You may experience increased latency when
> communicating with some Internet sites.  Other sites may be
> unreachable for short periods of time.

> When an ISPnet router is rebooted, direct customer
> connections to that routers will go down and stay down for
> periods of up to 15 minutes.  This includes all ethernet
> cross-connects to customers colocated at 25 Broadway and all
> T1 and T3 circuits to customers in lower New York State.

> If you have one of these types of connectiosn and you are
> not dual-homed (connected to ISPnet and another ISP) or
> dual-connected (two connections to ISPnet), then your
> Internet connection will be broken for approximately 15
> minutes some time within the maintenance window.

>     [If you wish to explore the option of being dual-
>     connected, plesae send email to sales at]

> We are aware of the inconvenience any Internet outage causes
> our customers and do our best to minimize them.  This
> weekend's upgrades are necessary to support increases in the
> size of our customer base and increases in overall traffic
> levels.

> We appreciate your understanding.
