Is it just me who finds this mildly ironic. TransACT offer something like
50 Mbps over the VDSL pair and then go and supply additional pairs
for each of the 3 kHz analog phone services each of which is converted at the
exchange into 64 kbps PCM circuits.

Yes I know VoIP/ PSTN gateways aren't wide spread, but there must be
a market there somewhere for one of the Telco's to terminate H.323/SIP
calls into and out of the PSTN.  Certainly a lot cheeper than $250!!
