I have a site hosted through Binary.net - and I can agree with Bill, 
they've been very good.  I called them last week on trying to get DSL 
installed in my apartment here in Omaha.  Here was the response:

>Alltel will only allow that if you get a business line.

Also, the Central Office (Fort Street loc) that I'm serviced from does not 
support DSL on the Alltel circuits.  I'm not sure about US Qwest, but I 
can't get that (Apt management contract with Alltel).

If there is an interruption of Cox at home, I might be looking for an ISP that 
will support a dial up PPP.  (Novia no longer supports Dial-Up modems for 
New Customers, otherwise I'd go back with them)

Of course, with recent news of bridging networks using Linksys Wireless 
routers, who knows. :)

I'd be with Novia, if my past two apartments I've lived in supported a DSL
