Actually, Verizon is hopeless for any service OTHER than POTS. Whether
it's DSL, T1, ISDN, etc., if it isn't POTS, it's not important to them.
I had a T1 that got pulled apart weekly 'cause the guys on the poles
with the test sets didn't hear dial tone, and needed pairs. They
apparently didn't know what those funny "DATA" tags were.
