How to repair fiber cuts...

In case you were wondering, the reason I'm asking this is because I have
a theory I want to check out, which is that being spoilt with SDH over
here, the operators have less (or indeed no) proper disaster plan for
fiber cuts (varies operator to operator), and thus they get really
caught out either when there are two cuts, when their SDH doesn't do
the right thing, or when they forget that certain things aren't SDH.
(Yes Peter, you know who I mean).

This Peter ? I know woh I think you mean...
