Fwd: Link utilization

“In Kenya (sorry to be like this) we have downtimes which are not planned &
communicated. Sometimes they last days, but the ISPs feel nothing. You will
never see any credit note when they bill you after such downtimes.”
This is why I brought it up to this forum, they (ISPs) are all here, so I
hope things change for the better after they get the info.
