When DirecTV DSL decided to quit, I studied that site for hours, and  
decided on Speakeasy, which I had not heard about. Haven't been there for  
a while, but it's likely to still be an excellent and unbiased source of  
lots of good info.
Keep in mind that people are much more likely, I'd say, to past messages  
about their troubles with a given provider, than are happy customers. I  
really ought to post a nice commentary about Speakeasy.

Btw, I think Speakeasy has its own dedicated fiber trunks. They are the  
biggest independent provider in the USA, afaik.
