Every NAP with a GIGAswitch/FDDI offers full duplex FDDI; the MAEs, Sprint, PAIX, and you. Buy a full-duplex-capable card, install it, and you get full duplex. You, the NAP operator, do nothing; the devices negotiate in and out of full duplex mode themselves. I'm somewhat confused as to why you would say you offer full duplex FDDI in a manner that implies no-one else does. If someone walked up to your GIGAswitch/FDDI (or anyone's) with a full duplex line card, they'd get full duplex unless you took some specific action to prevent it (by, say, putting three stations on a ring), or if you disable it in management (it comes enabled by default).
