I've had nothing but great service through Omsoft. The initial install was 
a bit shaky, as the copper was old (and the 2 redundant RJ11 boxes dangling 
outside weren't helping, and the fact I left the outside cover plate off 
the telco box for the only two days it rained...D'OH!).
I did a self-install, with Omsoft ready to come out and assist. I got the 
DSL modem and microfilters three weeks before the line was ready to go.

The two times in the last 11 months I've had a problem, Omsoft went to bat 
for me (hmmm...I like the image of someone talking to PacHell with a 
bat >:-) and got the problem fixed pronto.

Oh, and for some bizarre reason, AT&T dropped me as a long-distance carrier 
when my DSL was hooked up. I think PB illegally stole the line--I forget 
the industry term. Next time I called AT&T, they acted like I was a 
brand-new customer, forgetting the last 6 years! Thanks, PB!
