ISDN BRI



What you can do is (if you are important enough) apply for TSP (tsp.ncs.gov) in conjunction with provisioning of a circuit to actually have this type of engineering happen and persist, including emergency restoration.  If your local carrier doesn't offer the redundancy you want, your only other choice is to build it yourself.  Considering the cost of lighting a 10G or 1G strand of fiber for 10km or 20km, working with a BRI isn't that important anymore.

Telco copper plant is usually based on large multipair cables from the CO on a specific route, so even if you managed to get them to commit to diverse routeing in the CO, the copper pairs will still be in the same cable bundle, entering your building and the CO at the same points.
