That's a great story Anthony! It's similar to my issues. I already do this
for termination. DID and SMS issues are more difficult to manage. And the
issues you have with one carrier that drives you to mass port your DIDs
that you hope to escape start happening with your new carrier.

I wish carriers would have the same level of visibility in their service
and infrastructure as you seemed to have with Intellisight, and then fix
the problems proactively when they find them.

     "What gets measured gets managed."

So true. So elusive in this business.
