That's because ISDN is really just "telephone service"....
Sure, there's buzz not dialtone on the pair. But it is one pair
(BRI), and it goes to a line card on a switch. Your call drops;
BFD, call back. No VPI/XYZ's etc.
No NoNuts (now Verizontal North) could never get POTS working,
either. So I'd be unshocked iffen they have ISDN grief.
And Verizontal South (old See & Pee) has LOTS of it since ISDN
Centrex is big with them, VERY big.
