SLC charges on ISDN lines -- 1 or 2?

  We are having difficulty determing the number of SLC charges for some of
  the LECs, in part because it is hard to get people on the telephone at the
  FCC, the state commissions or the companies who can answer a simple
  question.  Based upon your own bill, does the LEC charge by line or by
  channel for the SLC charges.  (the so-called FCC subscriber line charge). 
  The typical SLC is $3.50 for residential lines, and $6 for busines
  lines...  some LECs apparently charge double (for each B channel), and
  some, it seems, charge once (by line).  For your LEC, what is the deal?
