Well, gentlemen, you have to ask for the fiber maps and have them placed in the contract as an exhibit. 

Most of the large commercial banks are doing it. It's doable, but it does require effort. 

And again, sorry for the dislaimer. It should be gone tomorrow.

If this is news to them, perhaps its time to get new decision makers and 
buyers of network capacity at major IP backbones :-)

Unfotunately people have to learn the same lessons over and over again.


   "End-to-end multi-carrier circuit diversity assurance currently cannot
   be conducted in a scalable manner. The cost and level of manual effort
   required demonstrated that an ongoing program for end-to-end
   multi-carrier circuit diversity assurance cannot currently be widely


   "The NDAI report confirmed our suspicions that diversity assurance is
   not for the meek," Malphrus added. "It is expensive and requires
   commitment by the customer to work closely with carriers in performing
   due diligence. Until the problem is solved, circuit route diversity
   should not be promoted as a general customer best practice."
