I'm pretty sure those requirements are the only thing keeping Last Century
Link in business.

I had to call to get pricing for an analog line for an alarm panel a few
months ago.  After lots of questions about our existing corporate phone
system and offers to get us switched entirely over to them (to ease our
"management burden"), the sales droid bashed a few rocks together and told
me it would be "approximately" $75/mo.  When I responded in a shocked
manner, he told me the setup fees were $150 and I could spread it over 6
months if I wanted to.  Sheesh.

It was cheaper to put a radio and a SIP ATA.
