This is true. If you want DSL, it is the phone company (Verizon) who 
connects the cable to your home/office. 

Also note that Comcast provides business class services including static IP 

For the most part both Speakeasy and Comcast have good reliable Internet and 
phone services. I've heard some horror stories on both. However, I would 
avoid Verizon (as your primary).
