Alrighty all, I'm wondering whose been a successful, competent, reliable
provider in your opinion. I don't want to ramble on about any specific
company, but I have a gripe with one of my carriers.

Currently I use Level3, Global and Verizon. Anyone have other reliable
providers who don't make full-blown equipment swapouts without change
management (reversion) plans during business hours ;)

Difficult to find an all-inclusive list of carriers. I know about XO and
Qwest, but anyone else using a reliable peer I'm overlooking. Off-list
replies welcomed however, I wouldn't want to hear full-blown gripes.
I've had enough from clients this week due to one of my carriers and
their desire to yank/change equipment without 1) notifying us of a
change(potential outage) not reverting/resolving fast enough. So imagine
your entire VoIP ITSP infrastructure down the first time for 8+ hours,
only for the same carrier to come back and do the exact same thing
within 10 days for 9+ hours more. Yes sir/maam, I've had headaches this
