doesn't seem to be even willing to change BGP timers.  If anyone have
been able to talk AT&T or Qwest in doing so, it would really help to

You set the timers on your side and the two sides negotiate then select the lowest timer settings.  The BGP session automatically hard resets on some equipment when changing the timers, so be aware of that.
