What to do when your ISP off-shores tech support

Much easier said than done.  Verizon has a small territory within 
Qwest's 14 state region -- it's in Grants Pass, Oregon.

No local ISP partners with Verizon because it's hideously expensive and 
obviously not enough of a demand or even a big enough service area for 
an ISP to partner with VZ.

Not sure where Mr. Black is from but he's probably in the same boat.
