[VoiceOps] Transport

A lot of them have an aggregated transport facility (e.g. a DS3) from 
the ILEC that they pay as a fairly large fixed cost, so T1s to customer 
locations are "tail circuits" (distinct T1s on one end, and 
cross-connected and muxed onto your T3 on the other) with a lower 
incremental cost.  Actual cost depends on mileage factors and any 
interoffice mileage, but can be as low as $100-$150.

If a lot of your competitors are CLECs, the answer is more obvious.
