RE: Clear Channel on a T1

Hmm, interesting. According to folks here, there's no difference in price as
far as tariff is concerned.. Different USOC codes, though. As far as I know,
nobody here makes a difference in port cost for DS1 based on channel config,
in fact, you'd
probably get a 'are you sure you want that?!' from whoever is selling the
service to you if it is for an Internet service.
Weird. Oh well.
