I might also add to my last comments that I do ALL of my own services -
name serving, mail, web, etc. So I need Verizon or whomever to do nothing
but supply me with a data port and IP address. According to their
(Verizon) info with Business DSL they supply a lot I would not use. I
don't want their domain name, mail, webpage etc. The unlimited dialup is
nice I guess in a pinch.

I also have Verizon home service package - wired line and two Verizon Cell
phones. I am assuming that there would be some discount using all of their
services. At least they state that.

That being said, it would still be nice to deal with a more linux/server
friendly supplier like DCA if I could.
