My ISP is... Best Buy?

So, I've been with my current DSL provider for over 6 years now.. through several moves and it has always provided great service. A little pricer than most, but I get a bridged DSL (no PPPoE), static IP connection with no restrictions and the blessing of the provider to run servers and share wireless with neighbors.

Today, I get an email that they are being bought by Best Buy! (http://www.speakeasy.net/press/pr/pr032707.php)

So.. I am now in the market for a new DSL Provider. I would prefer a DSL (my own personal bias) provider in the Chicago area besides AT&T/SBC and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions..

I've browsed around dslreports and have looked at Cyberonic but other things I have heard is that thier service is declining as well. Beyond that, I could look at some regional ISP's (Interlync, SpeedNet, etc) but was hoping for some real world exeriences with people here..

looks like they bought it mainly for their "Best by for Business" practice and mostly for their VoIP business that SpeakEasy has been pushing of late.

Frankly, they won't be my ISP for much longer (maybe a month at most)..

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
