This is not helpful if the problem is on the ISP side. My experience 
with Bell Aliant is very bad. Even their second level had no idea how 
the internet works. They said that there was noone else to talk to.

I tried to explain to them that one of their two transatlantic-providers 
had a problem in Frankfurt, all traffic died there, which rendered half 
of Europe unavailable.

Their response was: "We don't have customers in Frankfurt."

I asked to speak to someone who is charge of their Border Gateway 
protocols, and was told that they don't use that.

Bell Aliant is not a reliable ISP.

Ah, I've also had billing issues, and the advertised bandwith was not 
delivered. The actual bandwith was a joke.
