Thats bunk,

First off if your an CLEC the relys on LEC for your copper then you have a
problem. My experiance with verizon is that you
first have to dispatch your own fileds services people, shoot the line and
find the issue (4hrs on a good day.
second, you call in a ticket (which takes up to 24 hrs to acknowledge).
Third, the lec dispatches a tech to investigate, if he cant find the problem
the close out your ticket.
Four, if problem isnt resolve a "vendor meet" has to be setup, you have to
handhold the verizon tech and educate him on dsl.(48hr notice).

as for relibility, I cant tell you the number of times a Verizon tech, would
be out to install a phone line and steal one of our dsl lines cuase it did
not have a tone.

For the most part, I don't see that the level of service is much different
if you sign up for a business class DSL line.
You get an SLA, like a T1
The phone company (usually) gives you a 24 hour turnaround time on line
repairs, like a T1
If the ISP itself is incompetent, or just doesn't care about their
customers, or is too overwhelmed to manage their business, you can't knock
the technology for that.

You are aware that a good percentage of the T1's you purchase nowadays
are
just a pair of bonded 768 dsl lines, right? The phone companies have
been
doing that for over 20 years to save on copper.

I don't think anyone is knocking dsl technology, just the expectation
that you can run mission critical services with the level of service you
get with dsl.
