As mentioned previously, there are a lot of variables that effect this claim.

A lot of businesses include this sort of data in their quarterly reports.  Some of your questions might be answered by

Additionally, I'd do a Google search for terms like "System Availability" and include some Tier 1 providers to see
what kind of data comes back.  Then just go from there.
