It’s not SIP channel issue unfortunately. Rob is on the money.

I am led to believe that line orders are being provisioned with urgency to increase capacity, so definitely not a BW or SIP issue per-se.

it sounds to me more like a finite number of SIP channels, rather than bandwidth.

could quite easily be a licenced capacity on an SBC type deal
