There are SOHO modems that will fall back to a second connection if
the primary one fails, but that's not what we're talking about here.
The customers I'm talking about are businesses large enough to have
two dedicated upstreams, and a chunk of address spaced SWIP'ed from
each. Some run BGP but I get the impression as likely as not they
have static routes to the two upstreams.
For people who missed it the last time, I said $50K/mo, not $50/mo. Letters matter.
