The one's that don't provide a top-notch smarthost usually don't handle
abuse complaints either. Just what do they do for their customers? I'm curious.
The biggest problem is that to most customers, there's not a lot of obvious
difference between a poorly supported cheap DSL line from ISP A and a well
supported more expensive DSL line from ISP B. So they don't see the point
in paying anything more than the rock-bottom-lowest-price for DSL
service. The fact that they get what they pay for is overlooked.
