That solution actually works better than most other solutions when you
have a fixed circuit (voice T1/E1) to your company. At least you have a
backup plan in place for the customer. Some telco's that you bought a T1
of would just come and say: "sorry, somebody cut your line off, it'll
take 3 weeks to repair" and charge you the line rental for those 3 weeks
anyway (not mentioning any formerly state owned telco in the country i
life currently in.).

Kind regards,
