I've wanted to start a GeekTelCo for a long time.  Just a PSTN
gateway.  Bring your own server (at your home), features and frills.
Everyone would know how over subscribed the lines are and be able to
watch the load etc.  They could lower their cost by choosing to bring
on additional users and sharing expenses.  No restrictions on
configurations or devices.  The only support you get is a mailing list
- full of smart users who have and interest in you getting it right.

You can get a T1 with 23 channels for under $20 a month per channel
and oversubscribe it 2:1 without any trouble (I'm guessing).  That
brings the cost down to <$10 for a line.  You could easily allow
people to have two and three channels going at the same time *if* they
didn't try to run a business off of it.

Also, the packets would NOT be bouncing all over the US before
terminating, it would be a nice local pipe.

Anyway, I know it doesn't answer your question, but it sounds fun.

BTW, this is where I'm getting my service:
