Tips on Buying Fractional T1
If you can not afford a full T1 line, you need to consider a fractional T1 line instead. Why not get all the extra advantages of T1 even if you're not looking for a complete T1? A significant number of customers consider the largest factor in their decision making is reliability. You should consider it too if reliability is vital to the applications you run over your network line. If you are currently using DSL for your internet connection, you must think about replacing it with fractional T1. DSL is a quick and inexpensive method of acquiring high speed bandwidth in Greers Ferry, however it is not intended to support commercial applications or high volumes of traffic as are T1 connections.
A disadvantage with fractional T1 service is the cost. Even though you won't have a full T1, you wind up paying quite a bit more than you otherwise would for your DSL connection. This is due to the structure of T1 pricing. A T1 connection is established by installing a "loop" or wire from the user's premises to the CO where the carrier has equipment. Part of the cost of a T1 is the "loop charge" or the monthly rental fee for the wire that is provided by the local phone company. Once the connection reaches the CO it can access the carrier's network and communicate with any destination. This loop is charged in full whether you use a fraction of the available capacity or the full 1.5Mbps and therefore your price for a 768Kbps fractional T1 connection will never be fifty percent of the cost of a 1.5mbps full T1 connection.
Although the price decrease is not what you might wish it to be, this may still put a fractional T1 within your budget and be a great way to get dedicated service into your office. Once you have fractional service, migrating to full service is easy. Fractional service typically comes in 256Kbps increments from 256Kbps up to a full T1 at 1.5Mbps. Find the service that's best for you, but if you are supporting important services, think about reliability. Reliability becomes significant when customers or employees need to use your connection for immediate responses. If your clients use your connection to access your databases or your server or the Internet, then reliability of your network is vital. If your employees depend on your connections because you host the e-mail server in house or host web servers or ASP type products, your communication lines are considered critical. A critical connection can be thought of like a lifeline, without which your company would be in trouble.
