no I haven't, but they've been around for quite a while and keep
writing me.

One of their competitors is Rainbow Communications.  Towerstream will
give you single-homed-to-Level3 transit as the only option.  Rainbow
can hand off to a VLAN in 25 Broadway, IIRC.  (It was for a conference,
and someone from NAC was helping us.)

Understand that it is not equivalent to a T1 if you are doing VoIP,
because there currently seems to be no workable way to take advantage
of the complicated QoS/CIR features built into their radio gear.  It's
not just towerstream that has this problem but also cable and (to a
slightly lesser extent) dsl.
