Carrier diversity?

You may have carrier diversity in place, but do you have peering diversity?

All well have 15 carriers, but if at some point they rely on Level3 then you have issues.

In the UK it would be similar to saying it's OK I have Virgin and Vodaphone, so I won't be affected if BT's entire backbone fails.
