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).
