Yes the easier way to do it is have your subnet routed to someone
that is willing to colo your router, or provide your with something like
NHRP, and use a 87x on your brand new unnamed Cable/DSL provider to
create a NHRP tunnel for it.
We have many customers which required that kind of tunnel to bypass
some belligerent TelCo.
But if you're going to drop your T1 for Cable/DSL get 2 of them
using different technology and from different provider (aka 1 Cable and
1 DSL =D).

This is a fascinating thread!
I have had multiple class C address blocks assigned to us for many years (since
the 80's) I have 2 T1 connections and one of them is up for contract renewal. I
have wanted to replace one of the expensive T1s for a long time. DSL and Cable
are available here at reasonable prices (no FIOS yet) However, even after they
tell me they will do it, no provider will route even a single /24 (/30) for me.
Mostly it's Verizon and/or Time Warner.
I would love to have another solution. All I really need is to maintain the IPs
on my servers so they are public/world accessible. (Email/Web/FTP/telnet(!))
Perhaps I can route to a co-located server then a tunnel back to the server farm
over a static IP DSL or Cable link???
I am stumped.
