This matches our experience as well. When there are issues, they are 
EASY to get a hold of and the people who answer the phone clueful and 
dedicated to dealing with IP issues, not "can I help you with your 
long distance bill".... Also, they are pretty good about keeping us 
informed about maintenance issues. I would not use them as a sole 
provider (why run your own AS if you only have one transit provider?) 
but certainly I am happy keeping them in the mix to date.

We havent seen the same level of issues as some people in YYZ have 
seen, but I think that seems to be more on their 100Mb connections 
for some reason. On the gig service we are on, they are fairly 
reliable.  Not quite as good as TATA/Teleglobe has been for us however.
