Right, so because $TELCO wants to make more $$ from their customer they
enable slightly more BW from PE to CE, they may provision more backbone
capacity, peering capacity, or they may not. They may docsis/other-method
their service into a protected piece of that PE/CE pipe, they may not...
But if not for the '$TELCO wants to make more $$ from their customer'
status quo would be maintained on the PE/CE link, yes?
