Is that considered true by most leased dark fiber providers? If I'm leasing
a dark fiber circuit from a provider, I generally expect that what I'm
leasing is in fact one [or more] physical strands of fiber - not a somehow
redundant connection. Since he mentioned that this would be a dark fiber
network, I would tend to assume that's the product that he'd be offering.
Indeed, this has also been my experience with other providers, including
very large and relatively smaller ones - when leasing dark fiber, or
subscribing to a DWDM-based service, I'm going to be tied to a single,
specific path and physical disruptions to said path will impact my
connectivity. That's always been my expectation and experience at least -
am I wrong, or has this changed at some point?
