Well, I think the problem is that providers lock people in 1 and 2 year 
contracts so if people get bad service they are stuck. That is why I only 
have month to month service, if people don't like there T1 then they can 
quit. I think we need more providers to do that, I know of a lot users 
that are on providers that want to switch, but have 8 months left on 
their contract.
