If you don't pay the extra amount for a protected circuit, why should your circuit get protection for free when others have to pay for it? Now, if there are 10G customers with protected circuits who lost service, then hopefully they have in their contract hefty penalty clauses against the carrier. If not, then they are just plain stupid.
