I'm not in Texas, but I am rural - there's plenty of places around here
where it's just not economically feasible to run 2 diverse fiber paths
to a town.  Heck, a lot of these places didn't get their *first* fiber
until fairly recently.,+virgina&ie=UTF8&ll=37.279107,-82.099457&spn=0.414686,0.782776&t=h&z=11&om=1

Not a place you'll find a redundant SONET ring. ;)
