DATAPAC in Canada was running at least until Jan of this year. The 
price per month kept getting turned up and up and up and up to 
"encourage" the last users to migrate away.  By the end, I think all 
that was left were various banking / POS applications. I seem to 
recall the price around $1,500 a month at the end.
