Well no matter what things will happen and equipment will break. The question is whether or not they solve things in a timely manner when it is their problem. You need to give us more info for us to decide that.

As far as them sucking they are better than many others. But I would say their weak points are customer service and pricing. Customer service has improved over the last five years but pricing has been steadily going downhill in the last three years with all the sneaky extra fees and price increases. You now have to look out for the asterisk with BHN where you did not have to do that before (in fact that was one of their marketing points in commercials for a while). Now you have the $4 modem fee, the $6 late fee, and the $1 paper billing fee plus any box fees, etc. The positive thing about them is they do offer ample higher speeds at an increased cost.

Hmm... let's see.

$4 Modem fee / i.e. Company is not eating the cost of the equipment and its maintanance any more.

$6 Late fee / i.e. Customer should be penalized for being late with with payment (its the defacto accepted rule worldwide).

$1 paper billing fee / if your unwilling to join the 21st century and use a PDF / Email (where you can print your own bill), then you should pay.

Of course I'm just speculating, but given that's how I would run my business if I ran one (why give the cow with the milk?) I'm fairly certain that's what the corporate finance department and / or accounting department probably feels as well.
