I have no interest in configuring a cisco 17xx, but perhaps if one came 
preconfigured as part of such service. And provided that the net effect 
of doing this was to give me a pipe upstream faster than 768k for a 
single file transfer (which is the issue that I'm dealing with - clients 
needing large amounts of data from me as quickly as possible, but 
typically just one client at a time).

I'd be interested in something "turnkey", as per my comments aboved.
