I'm on Utopia with Xmission, and it's been great. The whole Utopia
network was down once in February (I think), but other than that I've
had a great connection. I use it for my VOIP with no problems whatsoever.
I track my network uptime, and I only had 3 days with less than 99.9% of
my pings go through in August. The vast majority of days had either 0
or 1 ping fail all day. Two of the three sub-par days were because of
scheduled downtime late at night. The other was because my router
stopped working and I had to reboot it.
