That's what you get for listening to sales-critters ;-).  A quick (off
topic, but humorous) anecdote: I once worked for a major ISP in their
NOC, where I once had occasion to troubleshoot a T1 frame-relay
circuit that was reported to me as "just as slow as the T1 ISDN I 
upgraded out of..." =-)   Seems that one particularly loathsome
salesbot had gotten a gullible bite on the hook that a Frame Relay 
T1 was faster than a ISDN T1.... Of course it was more expensive
to boot. For all concerned.
