As for the d channel. I almost went with shared but was told that if the
line providing the d channel goes down, all the other lines sharing that d
channel go down too. Shortly after getting my 2 PRI's one went down and
all traffic was routed to the line that was up. In the process of fixing
the one line the telco brought the other line down. Customers were able
to get back on-line with whatever line was up since each had their own d.
Hopefully that won't happen often. Since in only have 2 PRI lines, I
would have only gained one line by sharing d channels.
