"From: James Rice <jrice54 at>
"We (the company I work for) just contracted to SBC for a pair of T1's 
"unlimited transfer bandwidth.  It's costing $1200 a month.  We got 2 
"blocks of IP's, 32 addresses in each.  She also bought a Cisco 2600 
"router but didn't pay for setup. I guess it's "learn IOS on the fly" 
"time.  We write, sell and support  EMC modules that get tweaked all of 
"the time, so keeping 3-4000 users updated all of the time is a bitch, so 
"we are starting to do auto-updates via internet.  We had a pair of 
"pretty fast DSL's but the load was choking them, so here come the T1's.  
"We actually bought 3, but one is set up as a DS1 for 24 voice lines.  
"It's being connected to a NBX100.

1. wouldn't 1.5M sdsl be cheaper?  they're going for more like $400
   around here.  you do have to be within 9500' of a co.
2. you oughta be able to get 48 compressed voice channels on that ds1.
   dunno what rt exists besides ancient d-banks, though.
