No, but I do wonder if they open a ticket with them when the lines go
down. ;-)

Btw, armored cars are utilized to transport $$, and people expect
every last penny to arrive at it's destination.  Communications is
different, nobody is wedded to 100% availability.  It's a "goal", but
not a reality (outside of marketing speak, that is).  A little loss
here, a little loss there... who really really cares, at least until
an anchor is involved.
