I talked to Spectra and they refused to talk about a Service Level
Agreement at all.  Given that they're among the more expensive of the
Cable/DSL lot, I see no reason to go with them, especially given their
snooty and condescending attitudes (yeah, it's an ego thing ;-)

I've decided to go in for a 10BaseT UTP from my local cable-wallah --
at least I can go kick his a** when the service quality drops :)
