Last 18 hour outage I experienced got me a fantastic half month credit.  It cost us more to pay me for the time I spent on hold than the credit was worth, so I no longer call them if we’re down and downdetector shows others in the area are too.  We’re in the process of moving the circuit to a backup role, but it’s proving to be a long process getting fiber run to an alternative.

    Even if nothing else happens, calling in and reporting the problem *does*
    (or at least it *should*) set the clock running for any SLA-related compensation.
