There’s a company called IntelliSpace that probably would have lost money on me. They sell what they call “internet insurance” and what everyone else calls “a backup connection”. Basically, they’ll wire your office and if the company providing you internet access goes down, their system turns on, so you don’t lose your internet access. After all of my high speed connection problems, they’d probably classify me as “too risky”. However, the article points out that this company faces the same exact problems as the regular ISPs that are running out of business anyway.
