Which WAN solution?

If a consumer has 4 branch offices through the southeast. He'd like to interconnect all of the branches. Which possible WAN be best and why?
The best possible and most cost effective way would be to contact a Frame Relay provider (i.e. AT&T) and set up a small frame relay network, or lease access to a shared frame relay network. Each office can have varied speed lines into the Frame Relay cloud, which can be increased as needed. I would suggest starting with 128K links to each office. If that isn?t enough you could upgrade to a 256K link, etc. Keep in mind that the faster you go, the more expensive the cost.
