You never really want to utilize 100% of your bandwidth, you should
always have some "extra" bandwidth "just in case." Sure, there are costs
involved, but as a business, surely one could make the decision on
whether or not to push it as an expense, or take the risk of only having
1 connection. I personally wouldnt split the services between the two
ISPs, I would simple have another connection for those "just in case"
situations. If a business relies heavily on internet, you shouldnt be
worried about a few extra bucks for a redundent connection. Just my 2 cents.
When a "few extra bucks" is $2,000/month, you start looking at it differently.
(NetworkVirginia commercial pricing is $1175/mo for a T-1 (1.5mbits), and if the
original poster has 3mbits/sec, it's 2 T-1s. So $2,000/mo isn't just a wild-ass
