Outbound traffic on a circuit?

It is un-usual but not un-believable or ridiculous.

There are some context questions you will have to ask / answer ...

1) Are you getting 'A Deal' (or a 'steal of a deal' ?)
2) Looks like your upstream has some constraints that they are protecting themselves from.
   It will help in understanding what that constraint is.
3) What kind of circuit is this ? IP Transit ? or some other flavor of connectivity. 
4) Is this condition real or left over some other template contract they copied from ?
