Isn't there anything crafty you can do like order 10
POTS to the location. Wait 30 days and port the numbers
to cell phones. ILEC no longer controls the numbers.

Find a CLEC in the state who has a switch and port the
numbers to them. They provide the SIP trunk.

Order a quality internet connection to the site in question
and bring up the SIP trunk with a CLEC. You have 10 numbers
to work with.

Or maybe I am being a bit naive here.
