I have and they are far easier to deal with than Rogers ever were.

Set up to work automagically it is easy. There are really good resources for
setting up the IPCHAINS scripts. In any event Rogers is NOT static IP. Mine
has changed twice in the last 4 months. I use almost the same firewall
script for my magma connection and my rogers connection. The difference being
magma is static ip so DHCP rules are not needed. Rogers needs DHCP rules and
a different interface.
