Well, in that case, if anyone is reading from Verizon... I have serious 
routing issues from a Verizon Business DSL line in Roslyn, NY to a 
client's corporate office in San Diego. Lots of timeouts and horrendous 
reply times, some close to 500ms. The delays all seem to be within 
Verizon's network (

Verizon Online will not open a routing ticket for me without requiring 
the client to tear down their current setup just to plug a computer 
directly into the DSL. A few VOL techies have confirmed that there seems 
to be a routing problem, not a DSL problem (duh, the circuit is fine, they 
have no issues getting to most Internet sites) but if they don't follow 
the stated policy they risk getting fired.

I'm just trying to escalate to someone who won't require me to run a 
battery of tests on a DSL circuit that I know to be working properly. 
Getting access to the DSL modem and plugging a computer in, due to the 
layout of the Roslyn location, is not practical at all.

Thanks in advance.
