Yep. I share the same opinion. We refuse to provide VoIP services over the 
Public Internet, especially to business customers, because there is no 
gurantee of quality and no way to ensure that each provider will give QOS. 
Therefore, I reccomend that customers wishing to make a VoIP move do it to 
a regional provider, with facilities in their area that can deliver a QOS 
T1 directly to their equipment. That can provide shared Internet and VoIP 
traffice, but with QOS profile that gives VoIP priority.

I, like Alex, own and operate several data centers, and do not play in the 
Public Internet VoIP market, although I provide lots of bandwidth and 
hosting to companies that DO.
