But, if you REALLY want 30 parallel lines, is bandwidth really a problem? I would think that for the cost of installing 30 business analog lines you could easily upgrade that IP connection to something more substantial than DSL. Plus, I would think that an IP-based infrastructure would be much more flexible (easier to add lines, pay for what you use for outgoing calls, when you aren't 100% saturated you have that much more bandwidth, etc). 30 lines is what, the equivalent of a T1 or two? I would think that the cost of a real network link with a serious SLA is probably cheaper than paying that many landlines.
Can you really get a hosted PBX that does the termination + a T1 for less than $1000 a month ?
I wouldn't think so, but maybe I'm wrong.
