    Yeah, ask for the next guy up, and the next, and the next.  Someone there
SOMWHERE has to have some clue.  When one of my ISPs was having problems I
just went up the chain until I hit the support manager.  I just started
mailing him nightly MTRs.  After about a week the identified three different
problems with the network, one of which was a problem where they hooked into
another provider (sprintlink, anyone?).  After getting two weeks of nightly
MTRs from me the just dumped them all on their upstream and told them to fix
it or shove it.  Two nights later my lag problems (2-3 seconds of lag)
disappeared completely.
