Looking into frame relay to a friends house

Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for providers to look into. This would be a private frame relay line from Fruitport, MI to Waterford, MI, both addresses are residential. I am looking for around a 128k/256k CIR with a burst rate of up to 512k. The primary purposes would be VoIP, failover internet access, and a way to swap files, as well as "something to do". I'm just casually looking into this at this time, but any suggestions as to alternative technlogies with similar bandwidth that function as a private line (No, I can't use IPSEC VPNs - it's not an option in this situation unfortunately) would be welcome as well.
For the non-techie people, I'm looking to get a private, dedicated data connection from my friends house to my own spanning across 3 area codes. :-)

While digging through my office email archives I found something funny.

(comments in italics are mine :-) )

10. You ticked him off once and your next phone bill was $20,000.
Yep, that's me! ;-)
9. He's won the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes three years running.
Hmm. Not a bad idea!
8. When asked for his phone number, he gives it in hex.
0x02,0x04,0x08,0x8,0x5,0x8,0x7,0x5,0x2,0x6
7. Seems strangely calm whenever the office LAN goes down.
*chuckle* I just leave early when that happens. I think I technically manage a portion of the operations lan now, but who knows :-)
6. Somehow he/she gets HBO on his PC at work.
Used to - found a piece of coax in the wall one boring day and found it was live. Had comcast at my desk until my desk moved :-)
5. Mumbled, "Oh, puh-leeez" 95 times during the movie "The Net"
96, thank you very much...
4. Massive RRSP contribution made in half-cent increments.
If I knew what RRSP was, I'd probably contribute that way...
3. Video dating profile lists "public-key encryption" among turn-ons
Yep! heh 128bit? rrrrRRRrrr hehe
2. When his computer starts up, you hear, "Good Morning, Mr.President."
Nope, you hear that damn bring bring bring sound windows makes. - I'm too apathetic to change it.. :-)
1. You hear him murmur, "Let's see you use that Visa card now, jerk."
heheheehehahahahaha No comment.
