Not to say anything about Qwest, but honestly, I would have thought fiber into each tower *WAS* "redundant" (assuming separate fiber paths into each building so one backhoe cannot hit both).

Until last week anyway.....

This really is way outside most people's "disaster recovery" scenarios. I can see the thinking now: "If both WTC towers fall over, we have much bigger things to worry about than fiber cuts." And they were right.
