There is a major difference between Veracity and XMission. The latter
is a quality ISP with great people and technology and a solid support
structure for the savvy technologist and the average user alike. The
former, well, they have mixed reviews in my book. >.>
As for Draper, they are not a Utopia pledged city, but that may or may
not mean anything. I'm sure if you can get DSL, you can get it through
XMIssion over whoever owns the copper (as a bonus, they are very
affordable and you can get a /29 subnet pretty easily if that's your
thing, like it is mine). Comcast will likely provide the cable internet
service. I am not aware of any city ISPs like Provo or Spanish Fork,
etc, has, so that's probably your options right there.
There's the extent of my knowledge on the subject. =c)
