All the time. Regardless of my applications. I'm paying for it.

I think you have confused a circuit switch network with a packet switched network.

If you want a specific capacity 24x7x365 buy a circuit, i.e. T1, T3, OCx. It costs more, but it will be your capacity 100% of the time.

There is a reason why shared capacity costs less than dedicated capacity.
