Historically, BBN/Genuity/GTE/Verizon/Genuity... and
Alternet/UUNET/MFS/Worldcom have been consistently
the most responsive to security issues.  Of course, they
each have their good days, and their bad days.  MCI was
good, AT&T is improving.

The most common problem is different carriers have different
views on what is a "security" issue.  And they each have
their quirks on how you reach their security people.  Often
Abuse, Security and Legal are different groups of people, and
its up to the customer to figure out how to navigate the
corporate org chart.
