Codes and IDs

Typically $3,000 is required for the various codes and IDs that are required.


$5,000.  It seems that no matter what our customer's size, the ILECs always seem to ask for a $10,000 deposit.  We are typically able to get this down to $5,000.   The deposit can be satisfied by a Letter of Credit, which will cost $300-$500 from your bank.


$30,000.  For most clients, collocation makes the most economic sense (about 80% of the time).  One can get the lowest cost access to trunks and to customer loops; elements not accessible from other means of interconnection.   Colocation monthly costs are around $500-$700/month, mostly for power.

American CLEC fees

Payment of our fees is spread out over typically a 24-36 month timeframe.   $2,500 - $3,500/month typically depending upon the size of the project: number of states, number of ILECs, number of collocations.
