CenturyLink L3 outage knocks out web giants and 3.5% of all internet traffic

Great reporting

Good write up - first news site I've seen that didn't say it was a Cloudflare outage.

Cloudflare got blamed by everyone else since a lot of their error pages were visible to end users. The error pages were only there because the origin servers only had Level 3 transit of course so alternate routes weren't available.

People saw the Cloudflare logo and instantly assumed they were the source of the problem.
