In other words, bad luck. Probability dictates if enough time transpires, every bad thing will happen. 😝

My understanding is that the Bell Aliant outage was a double fault
situation.   Bell Aliant had a fiber cut on one of their fiber routes
early in the morning and then they had a fault on the diverse fiber
route before the first trouble could be repaired.
