According to http://stat.qwest.net/ Qwest and TouchAmerica have 100%
uptime for the last 90 days.


This is hardly surprising, most URLs that are used in SLA requirements are
very generous in what they consider network availability.

stat.qwest.net may only report DIA or "core" outages. I have seen plenty of
SLAs that exclude certain "types" of connections without specifying how the
determination of type is made.

Its a very cool site though. It feels a little "soft" technically.
