According to a statement from AT&T to its customers, the problem occurred because OSPF (open shortest path first) “network statements were mistakenly deleted during a routine configuration update to our backbone routers.”

AT&T network engineers reloaded the OSPF information and then rebooted the routers in order to restore the service.
