Am investigating carrier ethernet mpls offerings and am looking to see if anyone has knowledge of LEC local loop redundancy offerings that would provide ring-like failover functionality without the cost of installing an optical ring.  Many of my sites are remote, and optical ring installation would be very cost prohibitive.  Any known carrier offerings of this type would be appreciated.

Well there are many metro ethernet providers out there that have built out their networks with plenty of redundancy. The issue is geographic location and site proximity. There is also dark fiber availble and running a ring protocol like REP, ERP, or MRP.

A MPLS solution with PE diversity could also solve your issue if geographically dispersed.
