Sure, start with the customer and convince them that there is a problem.
SBC has, like
sprint/att/mci/qwest/abovenet/blah-provider-of-managed-services 12 groups
that do 'similar' things for 'managed customers'. Fighting their phone
tree as a non-customer is a fruitless effort. Fighting the phone-tree for
gov't agency #13 to let them know that some of their 'customers' aren't
able to reach them might prove simpler.
