I'm quite suprised they'd offer you a data circuit that wasn't b8zs. I
think they're just using this as a way to get an extra couple of bucks per
month per circuit. Without falling into a long discorse about timing on a
DS1, the bottom line is that you get ~1.54Mbit/sec because the data stream
is manipulated to maintain timing. A non-clear channel data circuit would
only use 7 bits for data, with the 8th bit always being a 1 to maintain
Now I'm curious... Can anyone give me a situation where it would be
"better" to have a non-clear channel data circuit?
