I don't think the target customer in this case is really in the market
for properly physically diverse paths which provide partial 1:1. The
target customer seems to be looking for no-frills, cheap Internet.
Customers in a market for properly physically diverse paths with partial
1:1 probably are already buying Internet from other ISPs.
There is no minimum Internet SLA that all ISPs must meet. ISPs can be as
bad as someone in the marketplace is willing to buy.
