vzb/mci/uunet used to, there is (I believe) still a 'response' SLA,
and there was an SLA for their dos-mitigation service as well...likely
somewhere off: http://www.verizonbusiness.com/us/products/security/managed/#services-dos

I was actually talking about an SLA for his link though, not for
dos-mitigation services. There used to be, and still is in some
networks, the thought that consumer grade services were essentially
'un-SLA''d, while 'business class' services had some form of 'uptime'
SLA associated with them.

So, folks that telework often subscribe to 'business dsl' in order to
get more guaranteed availabilty, lack of port filtering, static-ips,
etc.
