The majority (not all) of Verizon's problems come from them being ISP, not
line provider. I have them provide my DSL line, and DCA provides the ISP
service, and I very rarely have any issues.

In the 6 weeks I had Verizon as an ISP 3 years ago, I'd have outages of
30-60 minutes once a week.

I find it interesting that they hasn't changed. :-)
