Covad line from DCA Net. never had any trouble with my line. bullshitted with
my tech support guy about networking in general for about 3 hours on the phone
once. saw the president of the company lecture in philly and talked to him for
a while afterwards (this was before i got DSL). they just flat out rule. they
were willing to do anything, all i had to do was ask. 6 IPs? free. coulda had
14 if i had wanted. didn't feel i needed that many. it's actually 6+1 IPs
since i have a Covad IP for my router. when i asked if they could route my /29
to my router on the covad ip they asked me how long it would be till i was
ready to do it. no questions asked, no requests denied. no extra fees.
maybe that's why they went out of business, but i find that hard to believe.
they existed pre-DSL/cable selling dialup, T1's, T3's and Frame-Relay of every
shape and size. they are a total kick ass business. i can't understand why
they didn't make it.
life sucks sometimes.
