Speakeasy Covad Relationship

Whats the relationship between Speakeasy and Covad? I just signed up for service and it says that Covad just approved my service.... why?

Covad is the DSL provider/ DSL vendor.

Why get DSL from Speakeasy rather than Covad directly?

At the time I started my service, Covad wasn't offering static IPs. That's why I got SpeakEasy.

Should I think twice about getting it currently? I'm on the lowest priced\speed dedicated DSL, but I might have to upgrade to the next highest speed\price or adsl2 when it get rolled out.

Read through the ADSL2 threads here. I don't think Speakeasy has confirmed they will offer it, even if Covad does have it available in your area. You might talk with Speakeasy on the phone and see what the sales people say. Maybe it will change.

On the phone speakeasy said its in testing. I stayed with them in the end because they struck me as more professional and friendly (same reason I use CDW instead of 1st person i see on froogle.com when its not for me)
