As I understand it this is illegal; as long as the service (alarm circuit,
dry pair, whatever) is tariffed by whatever regulatory commission the
telco lives under, they are required to provide the service when asked
(and paid). I could be wrong though, it is hearsay. (or seeread, actually)

Bitch to your local regulatory commission and let us know what happens }:>
