I know this really isn't a Cisco question but this is the biggest audience I trust to answer this correctly? Plus any response I get could benefit other Network Admins too.
We have several T1's for both Data and voice. We get $ .035 per minute long distance for all of our telephone lines.
I have ordered a few ISDN BRI lines to use as data only backups for our frame relay circuits. When I asked about LD charges I was told it would be $ .10 per minute since it's data.
I am hoping someone can clarify something for me. Does it make sense they would charge more for data verses voice calls?
My understanding is it's all one's and zero's whether or not we're running data or voice. The Sprint reseller we're going through says Sprint routes data calls through additional equipment and that's why it costs more.
Does this sound right or am I being price gouged?
