I will echo this.  In sworn testimony in Maine PUC Docket 2002-243 (Dark
Fiber Docket), Verizon's expert witness stated that 90% of Verizon's
Sonet rings in Maine were at least partially collapsed.  I have a vague
recollection that he also stated that the engineering standards in Maine
did not differ from other states... so your mileage may not vary.
