[lug] Speakeasy IDSL -- BTW

I tried to do the same thing with Phoenix to get idsl in N. Boulder-waited
for 3 months for US Qwest then gave up. I have had an order in for isdn
since Aug. 6th and I am still waiting. You don't want to hear the litany on
this one-but a hint would be numerous losses of both my voice and data/fax
line, loss of voicemail, 2 engineering change requests to unload the lines
etc. etc. Still no isdn and no projected install date. So it seems even when
the aren't trying to put up road blocks to competitors they can't get it
together. Both Mile High Online (wireless) and @home say soon in N. Boulder,
so I'm waiting to see if they can beat my isdn order.....Kevin

Ah, but the question was, does anyone *use* Speakeasy. So far all the 
responses have been from people who have *tried* but *failed* because of

Since I'm in a similar situation (signed up with Covad, still waiting after 
5 months for Qwest) let me broaden the question and ask,

Has anyone in the Boulder area been successfully connected to an IDSL 
provider. If so, which one(s) and how do you like them? And what exertions 
did you go through to get it?

I would have thought, since I already have an ISDN connection, getting IDSL 
would be no big deal. I appear to be wrong.
