Another option to consider is looking into the low end "business class" service. Some smart feller somewhere started catching a clue cloud and started offering lower cost service under the "business" label. That means things like static IP's, mail and web servers, etc. actually ARE supported functions.

Plus, when service goes down, you can call up and start screaming about "lost business" and people get hopping.

They may or may not be able to help much with personal setups but at least they do the part they are supposed to do and then get the hell out of your way.

In general, the few I looked at (I settled on Cox Cable because I am not much impressed with DSL providers in general and Cox was the only cable option) tend to charge twice the going rate of the standard, residential (aka entertainment) service for the low end business service. Verizon actually has several low end service offerings. Just be sure to check the actual feature set since each ISP is somewhat different on exactly what they do and don't support.
