Well although that is obviously a possibility (Backhoe comes to mind) 
our connectivity comes from three different providers:

1. ELI
2. Sprint
3. TimeWarner

Also our connectivity is physically accessible my half a dozen people 
within 30 minutes, even at 3:00 AM. If something goes down, the whole
freaking world is notified to make sure it is getting worked on. Did I 
mention the natural gas fired generator? ;)

I just want to help make the parts of the project that we can, as 
reliable as possible.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
