the biggest danger to the internet is not the backhoe but rather
incompetence. a stupid upstream provider can screw _you_ up bad.
(can you say route flap & damp?) finding six competent upstream
providers would be astronomically improbable. focus your efforts.
you'll be happier.
our second biggest problem is the power outage (combine with #1
and you get providers who don't test their UPSs, &c.)
: my biggest concerns would be the following:
: 1) Fiber Cuts that take out your t1's
: 2) Power Outages
: 3) Router Failures
