Thanks, list, for all the good info, this was quite a learning experience. I
am currently using a Speakeasy T1 for VOIP, and am seeing a recent spike in
issues... I've seen over 4 minutes of total downtime already today. The SLA
allows for 99.99% uptime a month, the current situation is close to
violating it. Seeing that if they cannot resolve soon, we will have to go
with someone else... any recommendations for a T1 provider for the sole
purpose of VOIP would be very welcome.

Thanks, and I apologize if I shouldnt be asking about specific providers etc
on the list...
