<p>Unfortunately the service provider that I am with "Ipower" has run into a bit of a problem. </p><p>Here's a copy of the news article from my administrative control pannel to explain it a bit more indepth.</p><p>"<table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="2" width="100%"><tbody><tr><td><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">UPDATE: Connectivity Between Cogent (one of our Bandwidth providers) and Sprint</span></td></tr><tr><td><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;"><strong>Friday, October 31, 2008, 6:00pm EDT:</strong>Our Network Operations Team has been working all day to route traffic via alternate bandwidth providers so that Sprint-Nextel customers can connect to IPOWER Web sites during this dispute between Sprint-Nextel and Cogent. Many sites should now be accessible for Sprint-Nextel customers, and we are continuing to work to get all sites working as we head into the weekend.--------------------------<strong>Friday, October 31, 2008, 9:00am EDT:</strong>If you are having issues connecting to your website, or any other website hosted by IPOWER, this alert will provide some information to you.</span></p><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">Yesterday, 30th October, 2008, a press release was put out notifying the industry that Sprint-Nextel had severed its internet connection to Cogent (the provider of bandwidth for IPOWER), resulting in the inability of Sprint-Nextel's customers to connect to any website that gains bandwidth from Cogent.</span></p><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">As our datacenters utilize Cogent to provide bandwidth, unfortunately, our customers are affected.</span></p><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">We've been in contact with our provider, who says they are attempting to work with Sprint to resolve this issue.</span></p><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">Our Network Operations team has begun investigating a way to get around this block, to get our customers back viewing their websites.  However, it is uncertain at this time, if that will be possible.</span></p><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">For more details on what happened, and why, the press release can be found here: *Link Removed*</span></p><p><span style="color: #c0c0c0;">We appreciate your patience while we try to resolve this.  While we would love to assist you, there's little to nothing we can do in this situation, aside from relay the message to our provider that our customers are having issues.  Please remain patient, and we will provide more information when it becomes available.</span></p></td></tr><tr><td align="right">- 10/31/08 at 18:24 ET</td></tr></tbody></table></p>
