Thanks.  I was going by the web site, which doesn't list any of the 
extra stuff.  Nor does it list $28 as requiring POTS, though some of 
their deals do specify that.  See:



Obviously if you're looking for a provider you have to do more homework 
than this.

So Daniel's point that Speakeasy isn't much more than Qwest basic is a 
good one, though it depends what specifically you want.  Qwest's 
upstream speed seems better (for the price we're talking), Speakeasy's 
tech support may be better for others.
