From reading that, though, it looks like the ISP in question also has its own telephone product (after all, the quote in the article is that they are a "North Carolina service provider that calls itself the '17th largest phone company' in the US"
They do. I dealt with them as a customer once. (had a server hanging off one of their business dsl packages...the dsl was down for 4 weeks...)
They do phone service in a lot of the coastal areas from Brunswick, GA up into NC, mostly in the areas that bellsouth isn't in. They have a lot of different names, all part of the Madison River conglomerate. They have cable companies, ISPs, and telcos.
Warning if you ever have to deal with them: Level 1 tech support knows jack, and has no way to get ahold of Level 2, or anyone else. "All we can do is send an email through our ticket system..."
I wound up calling home phone numbers for various company officials leaving voicemail. And what do you know, less than 24 hours later the circuit was back up...
