What is T1 internet connecion?Is it better than cable?
it is one of the fastest, if ure asking this question, u will never use half the bandwidth, way to expensive too. usually commercial use
around here a T1 will cost ya about 1000.00 a month, oh yeah, ya can't get it at your house, reqires a very large cable.
Don't listen to them. Here's how it is:
T1 is like stupid little robots doing stuff... I've never seen it...
T2, however, is like Arnold blowing the hell out of stuff and riding motorcycles around...
T3 features the world blowing up and everything dying... But it's about the lamest movie I've ever seen in my life...
nah, dont need a large cable just fiber, but yes no practical at all for home or small use. on 1 T1 here we support 4 video teleconfnces and support netting with bandwidth to spare
I was always told it took a 1/2 inch or larger cable. I stand corrected!
Are you still stealing?

But so does Ahhhnold's ass.............
Cable and DSL in most cases these days is quite a bit faster than a T1. But a T1 will handle many more concurrent users than cable or DSL can.
T1 is not fiber. T3 is however.
I had a T1 for my office. It did not work as well as my dsl works now. However the few times that it was running fast...it was really fast.
alrighty then. Sounds expensive.
what is really freaking fast alex?
Here's a question,,we currently piggyback onto another company's server for or accounting and dispatch program thru the internet. (across town at another building) We will be getting our own server in a month (HOOOORAY !!!) and will be loosing the current T-1 we have now.
We will only need internet connection only,,( gotta keep the CK-5 online !!)
I have a meeting today with Sprint to discuss installation of a DSL or T-1 line.
DSL will be about 70-90 bucks,,,was told it is 1.5 Mbs down and 512k up.
Or a T-1 line 1.5 Gig up and down,,,for about 780 bucks.
A T-1 with 3.0 up and down is availible,,
Question is,,, in a small office with 10-15 users do we need a T-1 with such a big pipe or will DSL work for what we need,,, now that the accounting server will be under our own roof ???
I have a DSL and run two computers at once and it is fine have a router that will handle five or so. I was under the impression that a T1 is for multiple phone lines. I have a 100 pair cable running into my home/office and then into a phone system. If I wanted to get a T1 I would only need two pair of that cable to make it work. The T1 will handle 25 phone lines so you don't need the big cable. For me it would accually be cheaper then paying for the lines that I have now but my phone computer will not handle it so I would have to buy a new system at about five grand so its on hold right now.
You can look at it like this.
DS0 is a voice grade phone line. This can be 56Kbps or 64Kkbps depending on the equipment.
A T1 is made up of or equivelent to 24 DS0 lines or 1.544Mbps
A T3 is made up of or equivelent to 28 T1 lines or 44.736Mbps
Wasted Wages - I would go with a T1 - DSL would be fine for a couple users, but with 10-15, a T1 would be the minimum... $780 sounds a little steep for a T1. The price depends on your location and the distance from the nearsest POP. Ask Sprint how many miles they will be billing you for... Or how far from the nearest central office you are. I would get more than one quote. Try SBC directly or try Wiltel...
Problem is,, Sprint has this little town I work in sewn up and it's them or no one,,if we go with SBC or Qwest,,Sprint sells the service to them and they in turn jack up the price and sell it back to us,,hell we can't even get cable in this area because of sprint ,,,sucks.
Thanks for the info,, I think I will be going with the T-1 due to upcomming growth in the company,,,
