Sure, but a routing issue could manifest itself _anywhere_ along a path
from OASIS to a subscriber.
It's possible that routing failures at OASIS or OASIS' ISP would
discriminate against some individuals disproportionately. But it
strikes me that the more subscriber-specific the outage is, the closer
a router failure would have to be to that subscriber (ie. further from
OASIS/their ISP, hence less under their control).
