They may have also been getting the runaround from Level3.  I had a
hard down issue about a year ago when a L3 tech unpatched a mislabeled
cable in the MMR.  It took getting my local sales rep and his boss
involved to have someone drive back out and fix it.

To get back to the point, there's no excuse for Bandcon or any
reseller not to return calls promptly and provide regular status
updates -- even if their upstream support is unresponsive.  Network
Innovations, another reseller, has fantastic customer support.
