You're smoking something, Lee. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.
I have said, like 10 times now, that SBC charges me $92 per month for TWO
ISDN "wires". Therefore, 1 "wire", which would include the two channels,
would be around $45. SBC does not meter my ISDN Line. I can use this
line for local phone calls, or for internet service with an ISP. This is
different than doing a point to point ISDN circuit to an ISP. This is
dual channel dial-up over ISDN, not point to point circuit directly to
APCI. Very different technology, and very different pricing.
So, 1+1=2, and $45 + 40 = $95.
I may be lucky, since I was set up with Ameritech prior to SBC taking
over. They haven't changed my pricing, however, so I'm thankful for that,
if I'm not getting ripped off like you are.
