Chris, where do you live?

I live in Orem, and currently have Comcast.  Their service used to be
very reliable to my house, but in the last 8+ months I am constantly
having short connection outages throughout the day.  This makes our VoIP
phone service lousy, and makes online gaming painful.  I was hoping to
switch to Utopia to solve this problem, but you now have me concerned.

Would an XMission DSL solution maybe be more reliable then UTOPIA or
Comcast solution?
