Tell me about it... the options for broadband service in many areas still suck. I'm currently on a Megapath DSL line; they assimilated Covad and Speakeasy (who had been my ISP going way back) about a year ago, and things went downhill fast after the merger. I went through hell last fall when the line got flaky and it took them a MONTH to figure out what the problem was.
Believe it or not, I'm seriously considering moving TO Comcrap, just because they appear to be the only other vendor who will sell me the kind of service I want (static IPs, no caps, etc.) at a price that isn't completely outrageous.
Megapath keeps bugging me to sign a new long-term contract (offering a discount in return). No frikkin' way; I'm staying month-to-month with those clowns because if they pull another stunt like last fall I'm gone.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
