bingo.

i have multiple offices.  in each case, i buy layers one and two from 
the copper/fiber monopoly and layer three from local folk with clue and 
caring: lavanet (hawai`i), infinitiy internet (pnw), and iij (tokyo, and 
yes i work for iij).

local packet pushers with clue are not only better at layer three 
support and delivery, but they carry more weight with the hellco to get 
your layer one and two problem fixed.
