One additional point - I believe most (if not all) of the
affected trunks have been in service since before AT&T started
using fiber optics. AT&T has obviously been rerouting their
existing circuits as cheaper transmission paths become available.
For some of the older ARPANET/MILNET trunks, I'm sure they've
seen the complete transition from wires to microwave to fiber
(and who knows what else).
