The monthly minimums are extremely negotiable, especially with a
well-reasoned argument. It's a typical enterprise sales process -
start high, adjust, and use whatever ammo you have (from the customer
or from corporate) to get a deal done.

You won't get in with $100/mo but it doesn't need to be $2500. And the
process is convoluted enough that if you aren't spending a few hundred
$$ a month, it's too much work for them to do the interop with
you/your DID provider anyway. At that volume you'd be better off
getting one or more upstreams to work with them, or buying from
someone who already presents their own SMS access.
