MFS can't even do full duplex ethernet.  Of course, I don'
know of any other people offering full duplex LAN connection
services.  Party is related to the old ethernet switches,
that didn't support it.  But I haven't been able to convince them
to sell me full duplex anything yet.  (Clear channel DS3 or T-1,
but not much else).
