Sure. Call up any long distance company, promise them 20,000 minutes
of traffic a month, and tell them to terminate it on your T1.

Oh, you mean like for 20 minutes a month? Forget it. 800 rates are
the same as dial-1 rates, bottoming out around 3 cents.

NANPA assigns them, but first you have to set up a long distance
