Thanks for the quick responses. That was a lot of good information. I do need
some out-of-Canada service so 711 looks to be out. Knowing that many of the
others are off-shoots of Bell (I worked for them many decades ago - a fresh
young programmer just out of school) I might give them a good look. Maybe
their Solo service will work well for us.
