They can still be incorrect, but KMZs or shapefiles of my route or no deal. Accurate ones too, none of this line running through the middle of a house crap.

And can be hard to know without serious dilligence - two of our upstreams 
happened to go through the same 360 networks conduit in montreal that "saw 
significant rodent activity". Both were down for 6 hours. A couple customers 
had some custom apps that relied on the two, each as redundancy to the other. 

That didnt work out. 

Getting salesdroids to give you the info can be very hard though, and even 
tech dept's may not know what secondary providers their fibres run through or 
where, readily.
