Hehe. Wish that was possible! I used to work for a major bank in the USA and Level3 had quite a few major outages just before the credit crisis struck. We all used to joke and say Level3 caused the crisis because banking transactions would all be halted.
About 2 years later Level3 had a routing loop between New York and Washington DC. It took over 40 days for them to resolve the problem. It was horrible. They actually refused to talk to my ISP because they were not a customer. Instead, my ISP had to call another ISP who called another ISP who then called Level3 to report the issue. 40 days later is was resolved. It was a minor typo on a router config.
