VoIP outages generally don't last that long and they have become less frequent. If you can't live with even the smallest outage then build redundancy into your system, otherwise hope the outage does not last too long.

In some fields 100% redundancy is a must, Sky Diving is one that comes to mind.

VoIP is inexpensive, but if you want additional protection you need to build that into and pay for it.
