We ran into a similar problem with buildings that are owned/managed by CB Richard Ellis. They pretty much only allow their exclusive carriers in the building and deny any orders that do not in the tenants name. So if they have an exclusive with Verizon and ABC Clec orders a Verizon circuit in their name they will reject the order.
In many states, this is illegal. I think in NY, its illegal because NY has tennant protections on right to access services. Tho, it may not be worth your lease, but it could get you out of your lease, or better yet, you could get your landlords to pay your rent for the rest of your lease after you take them to court over it(if your willing to do so). Either way, talk to a lawyer first.
