Close to a year back, I did check the broadband map. They said that I might be able to get a local provider, Sovernet, whose name I was familiar with. I checked out their web site, and not only did they permit servers, they would assist me with setup, host my dns records, etc. So I contacted them, ready to take the bandwidth drop from 4 bonded down-channels at Comcast to DSL, just for the better TOS.
No-go. If the network touches fiber between the CO and me, the ILEC is permitted to exclude CLECs. That was one of the freebies the FCC granted in order to encourage the rollout of fiber. I have no "enlightened TOS" available to me. Nor do I have fiber to the curb or home - the fiber is there for Fairpoint's benefit, not mine.
