We were talking to AT&T once about using them for last-mile in their
territories. The first pricing we got was astronomical. One we recovered
from the shock and scrolled down, we saw all the 98%discount this, 95%
discount that tables, which after being applied brought them into the
ballpark. I seem to remember the initial price being their tariff rate.
Verizon may be playing the same games.
