If you don't pay the extra amount for a protected circuit, why should your 
circuit get protection for free when others have to pay for it?  Now, if 
there are 10G customers with protected circuits who lost service, then 
hopefully they have in their contract hefty penalty clauses against the 
carrier.  If not, then they are just plain stupid.
