I think you'd be surprised. Even in Listowel a CT1 for POTS termination was
on-par with having the individual analogue lines brought out. You'll pay a
little more for the smartjack lease but it eliminates a lot of headaches.
Hell the PRI here in cow-town Listowel was in-line with POTS until you
included the D channel price of $500 -- The B chans were all $55/mo which is
exactly what a business line costs. I imagine CT1 instead of PRI service
would have been significantly cheaper, *AND* I wouldn't have to pay for all
those extra DIDs.
