Chuck,

Your present T1 is likely going to a provider other than your local operating
company.  When I did this checking recently at a client who also has a T1, using
even 1 or 2 of the exiting channels for internet service was outrageously
expensive.

It was much more sensible to get another entire T1 from the local Bell Operating
Company (in that case US Worst/Qwest).  But a T1 with internet service was still
quite a bit more than just a T1 without ISP services.

In their case, they happened to be in an area with cheap unmetered ISDN, so they
are starting with a dual-channel ISDN (128K) since they don't have very many
concurrent users and their web site isn't hosted onsite.  They can't yet justify
the cost for T1 net access.

Unfortunately, they are too far from a POP to get DSL, and even the cable
company doesn't have service available at their location...
