Well I’ve made more headway in my quest for a future work around to having ISDN, which was referred to by a colleague of mine as “I still don’t know”. This same colleague prominent voice actor friend also believes ISDN is on its way out sooner rather than later. The telcos, don’t want to invest in the old technology of two paired copper wires in favor of fiber optics, even though the final connection comes into your house on copper.
Im looking into pricing bridging services from Source Connect to ISDN, and have learned that renting out ISDN studios locally is a bit costly, but what to do when AT&T arbitrarily keeps jacking up their rates?
One very good bit of advice I received from a bridging service tech that I might not want to ditch my ISDN unless I am absolutely sure, because if I ever want to get it reinstalled, I most probably will not be able to get it back.
There are software codecs being worked on, and my friend Dave Courvoisier features one today In the Search for ISDN ‘s Successor.
