    Have is and would have

    Many corporate customers said they had not lost service, suggesting that the problem was with Blackberry's BIS consumer systems, rather than its BES enterprise systems.


    "Blackberry runs two infrastructures," explained Simon Butler, a Microsoft Exchange consultant at Sembee.




    "The understanding I have is that the BIS service has crashed.



    "The business side runs on a different set of servers, although enterprise Blackberrys can still use messenger and the consumer services, so they are also affected," said Mr Butler.




    Such a major failure will still come as unwelcome news to Blackberry's owner RIM, which has been losing market share to smartphone rivals - in particular Apple's iPhone.


    Many corporate clients have switched to the device after Apple made a concerted effort to improve its support for secure business email systems.


    Malik Saadi, principal analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media, said RIM would have to resolve the problem quickly.



    "The current situation with the Blackberry outages couldn't come at a worse time for RIM, following some harsh criticism in recent months," he said.

    Is the above fine? There are 2 verbs next to each other. It looks odd.

    The words 'would have' means something in the past


    I think it should be the following:

    It's not "would have" it's "would" + "have to" in that sentence.

    All I can say is that it's acceptable.
