mid-town connectivity

Here's my problem:

mid-town crappy connectivity.  We have full control of building, roof, etc.

TWC "business" class is supposed to be around 20m down, which only
reflects in testing on the TWC test site.   So add the usual lies and
latency that their network bundles (for free :) and it's 5m with any
other test site, wget, etc.

The uptime is horrific for a 24/7 business.

FIOS not available.  The copper is crappy in the area.  Verizon ethernet
has a long lead time for installs, and is expensive.

Towerstream WiMax is very expensive for comparable bandwidth.

What are others using in midtown, between 34th and 42nd?  Custom ATT
fiber, etc?

Why is this not a dead thread in 2014 NYC?  If someone says ISDN I'll
realize my clock is broken.
