It did?

While I was but a mere techie doing the email services, I had the impression 
that the initial roll-out was sufficiently challenged, just to find willing 
adopters for this crazy, telephone-based relaying service.  Given how especially 
crappy the software was that they initially received for this, I'd be even more 
chagrined to hear that they were paying for it.

On the other hand, they DID pay for each telephone call... when they initiated it.
