I will second that.  I use broad voice and I don't believe I have have
problems with their service.  I do have terrible connection services
with Comcast though.  They have really fast speeds (and I really love
having the incredible download speeds), but their reliability is very
poor.  I don't mean terrible as in being down for minutes or hours once
in a while.  I mean I get a 2 or 3 second complete connection loss every
10 or 20 minutes.  Most people would never notice it (downloads, web
browsing, etc).  But playing games online, or using the voip phone,
those two seconds mean the difference between your spell being cast, and
sudden death!
