I don't think there is any way to escape Verizon for DSL.  As far as I
can tell none of the remaining players provide their own lines.  Of
course if you have a FIOS option, I'ld strongly suggest taking it.  The
real downside to FIOS is during power outages and you're left to the
mercy of a rather skimpy UPS.  Of course with DSL and a power failure,
the same problem exists, but if you depend on a landline phone, that
lack of power backup is awful.
