I'm curious as to your number... where is that from?
Marhsall had noted a number of 'small businesses' in the US at ~1.4m

Speaking as someone who does a lot of work supporting small business IT, I suspect the number is much lower.  As a 
group, these customers tend to be extremely cost averse.  Paying for a secondary access circuit may become important as 
cloud applications become more critical for the market segment, but existing smart NAT boxes that detect primary 
upstream failure and switch over to a secondary ISP will work for many cases.  Yes, it's ugly, but it gets them 
reconnected to the off-site email server and the payment card gateway.
