Verizon FiOS - is BGP an option?

     Yes the easier way to do it is have your subnet routed to someone 
that is willing to colo your router, or provide your with something like 
NHRP, and use a 87x on your brand new unnamed Cable/DSL provider to 
create a NHRP tunnel for it.

     We have many customers which required that kind of tunnel to bypass 
some belligerent TelCo.

     But if you're going to drop your T1 for Cable/DSL get 2 of them 
using different technology and from different provider (aka 1 Cable and 
1 DSL =D).

     Have fun.
