The key is to go with multiple suppliers who can guarantee diverse

Sprint and MCI can give you circuits in the same physical fiber.

Actually, in light of the conversation we've been having about carriers
flagging routes that are part of diversity pairs, what happens is you
get two circuits for such service from separate carriers. 

Would they have any way of avoiding co-lo'ing the circuits?  Is there
an intercompany tag for circuit paths?
