While there is a great lack of clue in many locations, don't forget 
the bean counters/marketing/sales.

In an outage, virtually all ISP's prioritize customer restoriation,
and sometimes the quality of the engineer working the incident by
the size of the circuit (which presumably translates into $$$'s,
but that's a whole different tarball).  Thus, one could conclude
that the lowest speed circuits get the "worst" service, and thus
those with the smallest bandwidth needs have the largest need to
