SDSL is up. Speakeasy's no joke. The loop was active when the installer installed it, and he plugged it in and it worked, right away
The covad installer cleared the ticket with covad and left. I closed the door behind him, and hit reload on speakeasy's site.
I already had 3 emails welcoming me to the service, and they took the liberty of informing me, that yes, they had in fact already immediately billed my debit card for the install fee.
Damn, that's hardcore..
Anyway, I get cash if you sign up for them through this link: http://www.speakeasy.net/refer/173473
