99.999% financially backed SLA
Intermedia believes in giving customers the best service possible. A 99.999% uptime SLA means that you should expect less than six minutes of downtime over the course of a year. Our competitors—including Office 365—only offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee- just three nines. While that difference may not seem significant, the difference actually amounts to downtime each year of over 8 hours.
