I also "prefer" to support local ISP's as I have since I've lived in Denver,
until now of course. However, everyone has budgit restrictions and at the
time, my options were either spend a whole lot of money or not quite a whole
lot of money for what I wanted to do. US West was offering the
latter...fortunately I haven't been plagued with any downtime or problems
since my DSL line was turned up about 4 months ago. In fact I must say I've
been pretty impressed with the service so far (something is bound to go wrong
now  ;-). The only downside was that it took nearly 3 months for US West to
get things straightened out and get me a functioning DSL line.
