NAKED DSL. (yah really)

I'm very happy with this service - DSL without a dialtone - and haven't had any downtime as the pairs are labeled on the punch down block with the number or if they are not, they will not be disconnected (there's a multitude of reasons as a former Cincinnati Bell employee who worked in their NOC and went to CO's to replace Cisco stuff when broken and talked to the peeps there) -- so, save yourself some money, get a cheap VOIP provider like the 4 bucks a month I pay for mine (voicenetwork.ca but I don't care if you sign up and I don't get anything... lol), and I think you'll be a happier camper - no more spam calls, my man!

Re: NAKED DSL. (yah really)

I personally have no need of VOIP.

If I didn't have to have the voice line for the DSL, I wouldn't bother having a land-line at all.

While wherever you are it may be possible to get cheap "naked DSL", it is hard to get that here, plus PacBell--ur, I mean SBC--ur, I mean AT&T folks in this part of the world have a history of screwing up and taking over pairs without dialtone on them. I know people who had to run outside if they saw a PacBell/SBC truck outside, otherwise there was a good chance they'd lose their DSL.

So, I'm glad you have service that works for you, but not really available here. We've taken to just ignoring calls mostly.
