I'd highly suggest Speedfactory.  The few times I've had some outages, 
by the time I got them on the phone and started to research the problem, 
it was corrected.  That's not to say I sit on hold a long time either. 
I'd say 50% I get a person the other 50% I'm on hold less than 1 minute. 
The biggest issue I've had with them was when they moved my mail 
services from one box to another and I had to reset passwords.

That would be Speedfactory.  And they are the only OTHER provider in 
this area that does IFITL besides Bellsouth.
