[PLUG] Speakeasy Worldcom-to-Covad nightmare

Speakeasy switched my circuit form WorldCom to Covad at teh beginning of
the month. After a 2 day outage during the switchover - I was fine for
abuot 8 days then I went dark 2 weeks ago tomorrow, and been that way
ever since. Trying to figure out what is happening between Covad and
Verizon is like watching 10 year siblings fight over who gets to sit in
the front seat. It looks like I will be moving to a cable modem
(reluctantly) - but before I do - I want to know if anyone else
experienced a similar nightmare during their switch? 

Also - I figure if I had been with Verizon directly this issue would
have gotten fixed quickly. Anyone with Verizon? How do you like it? Do
you have any trouble remotely connecting to your machines? Server's are
a no-no I guess, what about multiple machines sharing the line?

I'd really like to continue to host my own server - but if I have to I
can give that up. remotely connecting to machines is really important
for me though - can I do this with a cable modem? I'm already setup with
DynDNS, but I seem to recall that Comcast blocks all upstream
