Hi Paul

I'm having the similar issues, moving a link which was with PIPE between 
Adelaide and NSW. AAPT insist that they must handle it and that I have 
to have a fibre link (last was a copper at the Adelaide end) router at 
each end.

They seem very inflexible and have taken close to 3 month to get no where.
