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.
