Greetings. AT&T is offering us a very good deal on high-speed business fiber.  Their sales rep e-mailed me the following:

"Now when you do have a conversation with your building manager, please assure him that the fiber that AT&T will be installing is the non-regulated fiber that is used similar to AT&T's Uverse service.  Highlight the fact that it is the "non-regulated" fiber circuit."

Can someone shed some light on what the difference between a "regulated" and "non-regulated" fiber circuit is ?  I have no idea.  The rep said something about "regulated" fiber going through a building riser company and that the other tenant in the building also had a non-regulated installation.  They are on the 2nd and 3rd floors.  We are on the 4th.   Is it just installed differently ? Safer ?

The service is symmetric fiber with a 4-hour SLA. and a small pool of static IPs.   I presume it's business-class service.

Thanks much.
