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.
