I'm considering switching my DSL provider from verizon to another DSL provider that seems to offer multiple IP addresses to its customers (for not a huge amount of money).
I'm also interested in playing with IPv6 and it seems like in theory I could just switch to a DSL provider that does IPv6 and be done with it (if such a bird existed).
So my question is -- what sorts of experiences are there with using a non-mainstream DSL provider? I'm a bit wary of sending my money to a smaller ISP on the basis that they might go out of business or be a bunch of drunks or the local loop owner may get cranky and wrap my phone lines in aluminum foil.
I'm not interested in getting a 'dry loop' dsl circuit at the moment but may switch to one later if there's a significant advantage.
Any experiences / stories would be appreciated!
