Am I correct in guessing that this Is this the T1 nightmare you
inherited from me?

Cos yeah, that Verizon trunk was a (*#&$(*&% nightmare, and only  
reliable in the sense that you could count on it it constantly going  
down.  I remember even switching between 3 different providers that  
assured me that they would somehow route it through a different  
service - and then find out it was still the same verizon line.  The  
only difference in service I ever got were providers being more 'on  
the ball' about telling me that the verizon part of the line was  
having issues.

needless to say, it was definately worth paying the extra $100 a  
month from one provider to have them call me and say "we're sorry,  
but there's an issue on the verizon trunk" before I had to call them  
and say "look into this please"
