Hmm. Most of the ISDN toys I've played with (not many, admitedly) have AT
commands to manage this for you. For instance, my Hayes Accura has AT%P
frobs that allow you to define various thresholds such as 'don't kick
the second line if I'm only hitting peaks intermittently'.
Re: providers, elive (based in Limerick, evidently, but with a Dublin POP,
and kicking their data via uu.net) have served me quite well since I
discovered them. Dual channel, free access, almost zero contention. Of
course, now that I've told you all, I'm sure the latter will change...
No 1891 number as yet, but that's what I get for using a free dialup,
