Chuck, >We have a call into them (they faxed the quote) but WHAT makes this so >different ? 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...
