64 kbps  $195.00 $245.00 $150.00
128 kbps $299.00 $498.00 $150.00

With 128 kbps ISDN service, the second B channel is floating and only connects when traffic and utilization requires more bandwidth than the first B channel can provide. 

If you choose the Single channel service, the additional bandwidth provided by the second B channel can be added at a later date if needed with a $20.00 upgrade charge. Rates are subject to change and are contingent on availability of services and facilities at your location.

We are sorry, but we cannot discount our setup price if you have already purchased a router from another source. As part of our setup, we will gladly supply you with a configuration for your Ascend product. We can also configure other vendors hardware at $75.00 per hour. Please contact us for additional information.

Minnesota OnLine recommends several products for your ISDN needs. Please visit our ISDN Hardware web page for more details and our current pricing on these products.

If you are not certain if ISDN is available at your location, contact us and we will contact your local telephone carrier to confirm facilities are available. Minnesota OnLine can then, with your permission, instruct your local telephone carrier about what type of ISDN circuit to install for you. Please see our USWest ISDN Pricing page for full information on USWest ISDN line charges. Remember, Minnesota OnLine pays NO ISDN charges for your location. Installation of ISDN circuits can typically take upwards of 30 days.
