I can second the recommendation of Teksavvy (
I've been very happy with them, even though I sometimes have periods
of painful outage due to the woeful shape of the copper plant in my
neighbourhood.  (Bell is sure not the company I knew growing up.
Bureaucratic and monopolistic still, yes, but the wires are now in
terrible shape.)

Also, Teksavvy will do MLPPP.  Look under "add ons" on the Teksavvy
Looks like it's $4.00 a month.

Note that, in some areas, there's no copper, so you need to check.
Bell has been known to remove the copper where they installed their
fibre to the customer premises.  I think this is within the bounds of
the CRTC rules, but I haven't been bothered to check.  

Note that in some markets, Teksavvy also offers service over cable, so
that might be another option.  (You said that it was for redundancy,
though, so the cable might be in use already.)
