Before the merger, Megapath offered resell on their DSL Service. After the merger, it is hard to get that same agreement in writing. This was the main reason we chose to do business with them. Otherwise, pricing is higher than the incumbent CLEC but Megapaths connection is stable and reliable. Tech support available 24 hours a day and very helpful last time called but it's been over a year since last call due to no issues. I supplied my own DSL router and setup with tech support was a breeze. Overall, I would rate them a good service provider. One must understand though they do not really have any last mile infrastructure and are at the mercy of the incumbent CLEC or LEC for that last mile connection. Usually, Megapaths customers are put on a separate circuit which makes all the difference in the world.

I/C-Lec

MegaPath actually is a CLEC registered in all states they do business in. They have an "interconnection" agreement with the ILECs to have access to the copper networks. In some areas they do resell regular aDSL to businesses as a "business connection" but it is not. Much of the area that they cover now is only 50% of their former footprint. Before the Speakeasy/COVAD/MegaPath deal the footprint was MUCH MUCH larger in all aspects. Mega and their current leadership did away with much of their equipment in the field. Although a funny tidbit to know; the current leadership of MegaPath including much of the Board is from the former Northpoint Networks company who ended up bankrupt; including the CEO and President.
