Never. That never happens. Telcos all run thier own fiber in thier own
conduits, and protect it using SONET.

Bahahhahahahahha. Yeah, right.

Apparently, there was a cut on a route that took out a variety of
carriers; someone I know who has a OC12 riding on Broadwing was down for a
little while. 

Someone should start a database, where you enter information of where a
fiber cut took place, what end points were effected, and start building
correlations. That might be somewhat interesting.
