I recently discovered that ATT provides almost all bandwidth for vast area's of VZW in TN and AL (and probably others).  A car plowed thru a major cross connect hut on US72 between Huntsville & Florence AL and killed all ATT fibers thru the area.  One of my clients has a digital program line that was down, their backup ATT DSL was down AND my VZW backup-to-the-backup aircard was limited to less than 100k bandwidth on the local cell sites.  A local cell tech said that they (VZW) had very limited microwave data capabilities to most of their rural sites and depended on ATT for most of the overflow bw.

I detest the idea of relying only on internet for program delivery. If your internet goes down, then you're in a bit of a pickle. Our area recently experienced an internet outage that wasn't just one provider. From what I understand, someone dug into one of the major fiber lines between here and the metroplex. One of our local TV stations use's three ISP's, but when they all come through the same pipe, it doesn't really matter.
