Why not? -
IMHO If you already get diverse carriers splitting them between say
the front and the back of the building shouldn't be that hard
Many non colo buildings, old, or otherwise, don't have two 0 manholes,
don't have the riser infrastructure, etc. etc.
If you aren't already a carrier, you could end up spending a whole
of money on conduit leases, facilities leases, and commitments to
carriers that have to dig out from a diverse manhole, fees to the landlord
for boring the foundation and building the entrance facilities..etc.
Landlords today are very smartly getting involved in owning the core
infrastructure <splice boxes, cross connects, conduit> and leasing
it back to business, net, and carrier companies.
