[VoiceOps] AT&T/Verizon Wholesale Local Phone Service

Generally reselling local phone service triggers a lot of CLEC rules in 
most states. Many (most?) CLECs actually only offer wholesale/resale of 
AT&T and Verizon local lines (The vast majority of residential CLEC 
offerings are simply resale based, rather than facilities based) and 
those services definitely require a certificate of public 
convenience/necessity from the public utilities commission in almost all 

Some states let you file as a rebilling agent but that has some sticky 
parts too.
