In our New York office we've been waiting for almost a month for Verizon Business to repair a problem at our local CO. They keep saying that the damage from Hurricane Sandy was so extensive that they can't get the CO back in shape. The date keeps slipping and my superiors are getting restless.
VoIP is an option, of course, but they want circuit-switched quality for the calls which one isn't going to get from using an internet VoIP provider. Does anyone have any other ideas on how to get telephony to a building without involving the Local Exchange Carrier?
