Businesses are also far more cognisant of the economic dangers
associated with loss of power. If they get told that in a power outage
their internet goes away, they understand that. If they're told that
they can guard against the outage at their end with a relatively
inexpensive UPS, they'll understand that too. But if they're not told,
then they can't take steps to mitigate the risk.
The ideal situation is, as has been suggested, to get the CPE plugged
into a generator-backed UPS. That requires knowledge on the part of the
people who would be supplying the UPS and the generator, though.
