When the phones went down for a week in Manchester (fire in the main 
tunnel where all the telecoms routes through) the call centres with a 
proper contingency plan survived - they just moved that day into a new 
rented office outside the affected area and continued working.

I believe some of those without such a plan went bust.  At the very 
least it cost them a weeks business (and probably not a few contracts).
