Uh, ditto? Having left SoCal a couple of years ago, my data is a bit 
stale. However, I happily used XO+Covad in three separate locations (in 
SoCal). DSLExtreme also has (or at least had) a good reputation. Verizon 
sucks. In fact, since you are in the Long Beach area, they suck even 
more than they do other places. Vote with your feet.
