In which case ISDN 30 is probably what you want. I seem to remember
looking a few years back when we put ours in (about 2000) and I seem
to remember ISDN30 became cheaper than ISDN2 after about 8-10 lines

Yeah, we kept out ISDN2e line when we moved to our new PBX (asterisk)
so do VoIP within the building, and then ISDN to the outside world.
Gives us best of both I think.
