Never heard of Covista. They look like a very small player.
OnFiber owns MANs (local transport). Acquired Telseon's assets.
El Paso and Dynergy are both very large energy companies. It is very common for companies such as these to lay thousands of miles of fiber along their pipelines. Williams being the most well known for this.
Dynegy's communications division is/was in financial trouble. I know that they were forced to cease operations overseas. Dynegy's focus was on selling PTP connections from one Metro Market to another. Pricing was good.
El Paso seems to offer the same type of service. Not sure about their current state. In know that their largest pipeline inexplicably blow up a few years ago and killed serveral people.
You would use these companies for local or long haul transport not for dedicated access to the Internet.
Re: Anyone every heard of Covista, Dynegy Long Haul, or OnFiber?

Dynegy Long Haul
Has anyone ever used or heard anything about these companies? What about pricing?
While of the companies do provide reasonably good service, no matter how hard one negotitates with them the pricing that they have is wayyy off. If you are looking to co-lo, why not go with a facility that would have pretty much everyone under the sun, such as Equinix, PAIX or S&D as opposite to just super-expensive fiber carriers?
