Orthogonal to this discussion, Level(3)'s support, while never great
shakes compared to the exemplary service that I used to get from
Looking Glass Networks, has in recent months taken a sharp turn for
the worse. 52 hours for callback on hicap circuit outages,
technicians who can't read the ticket ("call only between 0600 and
2300 EDT; site contact needs to sleep too"), and just general apathy
and ennui more appropriate to an old-line incumbent (oh yeah, billing
screw-ups too) have brought my dissatisfaction to record levels.
Residential T-1 which I've had since 1996 - canceled yesterday. I'll
suck it up on the MSS lossage and tunnel my stuff over a cablemodem.
