Customers Happy + (Bean Counter Happy && Bean Counter != Crook) + Time =

One shouldn't make the model too complex. Know your customers and what they
want. Temper that with proper evaluation of cost (ie, don't run at a loss by
giving customer bandwidth for free). This is no different than any other
business, and I've yet to see a company with an SLA perform better than a
company without an SLA that cared about their customers.

Do you represent a major telco? If so, were you flying by the seat of your
pants when you top posted? :)
Everyone flies by the seat of their pants. If there was a single proven way,
we wouldn't need nanog or have any of the issues that are prevelant today.
