POTS is about $32.50, Channel Bank T1 is about $450.00 for 24 channels. As
I said, PRI isn't even available out of our CO. I'm very, very happy with
my USR racks connected to the Channel-bank T1s; I don't think anyone
connects below 41kbps, and it's more common to have 48-50K connections.
Folks who are close to their COs see 53K and THEY are happy as pigs in mud.
Which of course makes me very happy. :-)
