I expect all LEC, CLECs, wireline, wireless, carrier, non-carrier, traditional, next-generation, tier 1, tier 2, etc are willing and working to relocate and re-route anyone with service, systems, etc disrupted or destroyed by Tuesday's attacks. The FCC has told carriers "Do anything you can do to help." I would apply the same statement to non-regulated ISPs and alternative communication providers. If you need special assistance in getting circuits re-routed, or installed in a new location, talk to your provider. Consider many of the alternative providers, which had a lot of excess capacity before Tuesday's attack. For example, there are reports of several former dot-COM property management companies offering space in buildings previously occupied by dot-COM companies which went out of business earlier this summer.
