They want to consider _upgrading_ your service to be breaking your
contract?  That's Bell for you.

You don't have to have phone service to have DSL.  I have my DSL on a
second line (a "dry copper pair") that doesn't have phone service on it.
I pay a few extra bucks to my provider for this, but it's handy because I
can do things with my voice line without messing with my DSL and

One of the nice things about DSL nowdays (as opposed to when I first got
it) you can get it from a non-Bell provider without dealing with Bell
themselves at all... the provider handles all of that.  Switching from
SouthWind to Hubris was easy, since I switched to a dry copper pair and
had both services active at the same time.
