Thanks for the explanation.

So there might be a small chance a cell phone company may go through
all the trouble but not a CLEC which would find it unprofitable?

Here in NH if you have ORIG/TERM/IXC/911 trunks from FP in Manchester and
Dover you are all set. Plus some SS7 and LD trunks.

Only a few handful of small independent ILECs left here which serve such a
tiny amount of people we probably never ran into this problem yet. The
whole yokel thing. But I would have to talk to my boss to get a clearer
picture of what problems we would run into trying to get a SIP trunk into
their territory.
