It's one of the things I appreciate about the ISP I use at work being
local. Their first line are rarely that technical, do a great job of
quickly and painlessly filtering out users with basic problems, and
quickly escalate. If needs be I have a direct phone number for the CEO
and founder of the company, someone who is CCIE qualified.
